Chapter 532: Shock and Awe
With his heart penetrated and blood running dry, and because Shentu Nantian had burned his blood essence desperately, now his flame of life was gradually extinguishing. His life had come to an end.
Shentu Nantian stared widely and deadly at the black stone ground. And those black stone tiles were the last thing in the world he saw…
As an unscrupulous man, who resolved to be the formidable ruler of the Tian Yuan world, he died with his ambition and immense hatred, unable to accept his death.
Despite how brilliant they were in life or how much destructive power they held, as long as martial arts practitioners died in a mystic realm, they would usually die horribly like a wild dog. This was probably the woe of being a warrior.
In Shentu Nantian’s surroundings, many cultivators witnessed Shentu Nantian’s death and fell into silence.
Shentu Nantian, a figure who had upstaged so many people in the Tian Yuan world, had died in the Great Empress mystic realm. He had died at the hands of Yi Yun.
A person at the early stages of the Dao Seed realm killing a genius at the peak of the Dao Seed realm. Yi Yun was now immensely terrifying. If he was given another thousand years, it was unimaginable what he would achieve!
Many people who had feuds with Yi Yun became nervous. Yi Yun would very likely take advantage of the situation to kill them.
After all, Yi Yun killing Shentu Nantian and obtaining the Great Empress’ inheritance was something not to be flaunted.
Just killing Shentu Nantian was not that much. The Lin family was not afraid of the Shentu family clan. It was at most a war. However, regarding the Great Empress’ inheritance, that was an extremely sensitive matter!
Once the news of Yi Yun and Lin Xintong obtaining the Great Empress’ inheritance was made known, the various family clans in the Tian Yuan world might attack Yi Yun and the Lin family. If that happened, Yi Yun was bound to die an ignominious death!
In this situation, would Yi Yun choose to kill them, in order to silence them?
At that moment, there were only about 5 disciples left from the Shentu family clan. Their hands were clammy as they were nervous to an extreme.
One of the Shentu family clan’s disciples had undertaken the trials together with Yi Yun. He was most afraid for he had previously repeatedly ridiculed Yi Yun. He had indicated that once Yi Yun was eliminated, Yi Yun would be horribly killed by him. He had even threatened to use a disk array to record the process of killing Yi Yun, so Shentu Nantian could enjoy it.
Just thinking of what he had done back then made his legs tremble.
Yi Yun looked at Shentu Nantian’s corpse. His perception deeply probed his dantian and soul. After confirming his death, he took out a red lotus seed from his interspatial ring and ate it.
Ever since he planted the red lotus in the fifth level of the God Advent Tower’s cultivation chamber, there would be no lack of red lotus seeds.
However, the red lotus was a treasure after all. It took an extremely long time to produce the lotus seeds. It required it to condensed a large amount of Heaven Earth Yuan Qi, so the red lotus seeds were still very precious to Yi Yun.
However, the situation was now critical. In his battle with Shentu Nantian, Yi Yun had expended a lot of his energy. Under this situation, with him and Lin Xintong having the Great Empress’ inheritance, there were many cultivators present with unknown schemes. It was even possible that people would be gang up on them!
Other than that, there were two people with the Blood Moon symbol. It was unknown where they were as they had not appeared yet.
Yi Yun was very afraid of those two mysterious people.
Hence, Yi Yun made the decisive choice to eat a red lotus seed. After he consumed it, a surge of pure Yang energy arose from his dantian. The energy he expended was quickly replenished.
Using such a pure Yang-based treasure to supplement Yi Yun’s stamina, the effects under the additional of the the Purple Crystal’s help, could be described by heaven-defying.
Yi Yun scanned his surroundings. After breaking through to the Dao Seed realm, he could generally judge the strength of all the people present. These cultivators were the top figures from the various factions. A few of them may be inferior to Shentu Nantian, but they were not that far off.
Yi Yun’s gaze stopped for a short moment on a few people. If they joined forces, it would not be easy even if he and Lin Xintong fought together.
If the two of them killed all of them, Yi Yun and Lin Xintong would definitely have to expend a great deal of effort. At that moment, once the two mysterious people, who had disappeared, appeared, the consequences would be disastrous.
The atmosphere froze momentarily. After Lin Xintong killed the sneak attackers, she had returned beside Yi Yun. The two of them stood together, facing the crowd.
Not only Yi Yun and Lin Xintong felt the pressure, the other cultivators also felt an immense pressure!
Many people were considering if Yi Yun and Lin Xintong would silence them so as to protect the secret of them obtaining the Great Empress’ inheritance.
However, to the crowd, as long as Yi Yun and Lin Xintong were not mad, they would not do that. If they really killed everyone, how were they to explain it when they exited?
The forces behind them were all waiting outside the Great Empress mystic realm’s entrance. If all of them died in there, and only the disciples from the Lin family came out, then anyone could tell that something was amiss. The Lin family was bound to be attacked en masse.
The situation became more and more complicated. And at that moment, a few Shentu family clan disciples began to secretly transmit their voices, “Everyone, what are you hesitating for? That Yi Yun does not have much stamina left. There’s only Lin Xintong left. If all of us attack, is there any grounds to fear a woman!?”
“There are so many treasures! They have received them all. As long as we kill them, we can leave all the treasures for you! And that chick, Lin Xintong. She has a pure Yin body. If you had obtained her Primordial Yin, it would have greatly benefit your cultivation. Now with her improved powers, she would be the best cultivation slave. With her beautiful looks and body, are you not tempted by such a supreme entity? There’s no need to mention the feeling of enjoying her, right?”
A few disciples of the Shentu family clan constantly tried bewitching the crowd.
However, none of the cultivators present acted rashly.
Yi Yun and Lin Xintong’s opportunities may be tempting, but one had to have the bravery to obtain it. The powers Yi Yun displayed was already extremely terrifying, while Lin Xintong was even more unfathomable.
If it really came to blows, they had no confidence. Optimistic calculations would say that half of them would die. There was no way of knowing if they would win.
Furthermore, even after a Pyrrhic victory against Yi Yun and Lin Xintong, another bout of cruel killing would happen, and blood would flow like rivers after the Great Empress’ inheritance was obtained!
It was unknown if the final winner would survive after all the factions attack upon exiting the Great Empress mystic realm…
With so many people hesitating, the Shentu family clan’s disciples were increasingly worried, “Everyone, indecision invariably leads to trouble! With such an amazing opportunity in front of you, if you do not grasp it, you will definitely regret it in the future! That Yi Yun is no longer a threat after his battle with our young master! The amount of energy he has left is negligible, but if you give him enough time to recover, he might recover his peak combat power in a few hours. It would be too late if we decide to attack then!”
A few disciples of the Shentu family clan spared no effort to tempt the masses. As they transmitted their voices, they also paid attention to Yi Yun. They tried their best not to appear abnormal, however, at that moment, a sharp sound abruptly echoed!
“Shoo! Shoo! Shoo!”
Red golden light beams pierced through the air and they moved at an inconceivable speed.
People retreated in terror, and the first to be hit were the disciples from the Shentu family clan. They only saw the golden light coming over, and they had no time to react.
In an instant, their minds went blank. The power and speed of the golden light far exceeded their realms.
“Peng! Peng! Peng!”
After a few consecutive explosive echoes, a few people was hit by the golden beams like immovable targets! They did not even have the time to issue a scream. Their bodies were sent flying backward by the immense power.
The reddish-gold light beams penetrated their bodies. On their backs, near the location of their hearts, a burst of blood rained out!
The blood rain was carried forth by the golden beams and they flew tens of meters away. It formed a red mist in the sky and it was immediately evaporated by the pure Yang flames!
“Ding Ding Ding!”
Four arrows had been shot as they were mercilessly nailed to the black stone pillar before exploding into pieces!
And a few people flew up high like broken sacks, before crashing heavily to the ground.
Blood filled the black stone square. Their bodies twitched and their faces were pale. They stared widely at Yi Yun.
Yi Yun was standing more than a hundred feet away. He was dressed in azure-colored clothes. He held a bow in his left hand, with his hands by his side. He was expressionless, as if he had never moved.
The lives of the Shentu family clan disciples were rapidly dissipating. Before they died, their eyes were that of confusion. Were those arrows shot out by Yi Yun?
He had just had a huge battle with Shentu Nantian. Did he not expend a great deal of stamina… ?
Why… Why did he still have such terrifying power… ?
Until their deaths, these few Shentu family clan disciples still did not see the motions of Yi Yun shooting the arrows. Deep fear filled their hearts.
The azure-clothed youth before them was like a god of killing.
The disciples of the Shentu family clan breathed their last one after another. Yi Yun held the Sun Shooting Nine Deaths Bow. The sharp blades on the two ends of the bow reflected a cold beam of light.
These Shentu family clan disciples were all Yuan Foundation realm warriors. The difference in strength between them and Yi Yun was great. Yi Yun just needed to use an extremely tiny amount of Yuan Qi to kill them instantly when shooting with the Sun Shooting Nine Deaths Bow.
Murder at a speed that was like a sudden clap of thunder and which left no time for one to cover one’s ears made many cultivators’ faces turn ashen from fright. Just now, not only did all the disciples of the Shentu family clan that were killed not see Yi Yun shooting the arrows, the other cultivators who were below the Dao Seed realm also only saw golden beams. Then they saw the few people who were hit fly backward and what followed was a blood mist and Yuan Qi explosion.
This method of killing made many quiver in their minds!
This meant that Yi Yun could kill them in an instant. As long as they were below the Dao Seed realm, it did not matter how many of them there were!
Only those cultivators at the peak of the Dao Seed realm could maintain their calm under such circumstances.
They looked at each other as their faces went livid. Yi Yun had probably guessed what the Shentu family clan disciples were up to, or he might have never planned on leaving anyone from the Shentu family clan alive. They were not surprised that the Shentu family clan’s people were killed. However, for him to do it so cleanly made their hearts go cold.
Did he hold back during his intense battle with Shentu Nantian or did he have a frightening rate of recovery? He used less than five minutes to recover a considerable amount of stamina after killing Shentu Nantian?
No matter which one of them it was, they were equally terrifying.
He was decisive in his killing and his strength was astonishing. Such an opponent was daunting.
By doing this, Yi Yun not only killed the evildoing characters who were secretly scheming, he also created an absolute deterrent. Many warriors, who were at the peak of the Dao Seed realm, had also abandoned their intentions. None of them dared to make a move against Yi Yun anymore.
