Chapter 536: Resolution
With all their disciples completely dead and the murderer nowhere to be found, Shentu Jue’s anger was understandable.
There was no proof that showed that it was done by the Lin family either. There was no way Shentu Jue would believe that Yi Yun and Lin Xintong had the ability to do so. However, Shentu Jue’s intuition told him that even if it was not done by the Lin family, it was largely related to the Lin family.
Or it could be said that with, such a huge matter happening, the Shentu family clan had to find an outlet to vent.
The Elders of the Shentu family clan stared at the Lin family. The atmosphere was suddenly tense as if a battle would break out soon.
Other than the Shentu family clan, there were three other large factions who had lost disciples. The people who had died were Dao Seed realm geniuses.
These factions could still accept the situation with just one or two disciples dead. As for the matter of pushing the blame onto the Lin family, they refused to believe that so many Dao Seed realm geniuses had been defeated by a few Lin family disciples.
The situation was impossible to resolve. At that moment, no one was speaking as they were wary of each other. A bloodbath could erupt at any moment.
Elder Tianzhu’s face turned sullen. Suddenly, he felt something like a voice transmission entered into his ears.
It was the voice transmission used by the Lin family in the event of an emergency.
Oh? What was this voice transmission?
While the Elders of the large factions were about to fight because of the appearance of a few corpses, the scene in the Great Empress mystic realm was completely different.
Yi Yun, Lin Xintong, and the other cultivators may have already talked it out, but Yi Yun knew that if he did not settle the matter of the Great Empress’ inheritance properly, it would result in a future bloodbath.
Yi Yun scanned all the cultivators present and said, “I know that all of you are concerned about the Great Empress inheritance I have. Unfortunately, the matter is different from your expectations. I did not obtain the complete inheritance of the Great Empress. I only obtained a cultivation technique named the ‘Great Empress Heart Sutra’.”
“The ‘Great Empress Heart Sutra’ is a core cultivation technique created by the ancient Great Empress. However, this cultivation technique is not something that anyone can cultivate. The ‘Great Empress Heart Sutra’ is a cultivation technique dealing with both Yin and Yang. It requires a man and woman to enter dual cultivation. The man has to have a perfect pure Yang body, while the woman has to have a perfect pure Yin body, even to the point of having natural Yin Meridians. In this world, to find two people with these physiques, who will be suitable for cultivating the ‘Great Empress Heart Sutra’, is probably not that easy.”
The cultivators present all cultivated different laws. As for those who focused on pure Yang laws and had a perfect pure Yang body, there was not a single one, let alone finding a woman suitable for them to duo cultivate with.
Many of them had already heard of the “Great Empress Heart Sutra” from Shentu Nantian. From the fragmentary records in the ancient texts, their intuition told them that Yi Yun was speaking the truth.
“This kid is saying this to make the malicious people, who are coveting the Great Empress’ inheritance, give it up.”
The cultivators present could understand the secondary meaning behind Yi Yun’s words.
“Even if we cannot cultivate the ‘Great Empress Heart Sutra’, he probably has other things on him, as evidenced from that bow.”
The cultivators discussed amongst themselves with Yuan Qi transmissions. They did not believe that Yi Yun had only obtained a single “Great Empress Heart Sutra”.
Although Yi Yun could not hear these discussions, he could roughly guess what they were saying. He said in a solemn but slow tone, “The ‘Great Empress Heart Sutra’ is extremely profound and intricate, so Lin Xintong and I have already decided to enter reclusive training in the Great Empress mystic realm for a hundred years in order to grasp it. In addition, Lin Xintong and I have decided to sever our relationship with the Lin family!”
When Yi Yun said these words, all the cultivators present were suddenly taken aback.
Reclusive training for a hundred years?
Sever their ties with the Lin family?
People looked at each other. Quite a number of people looked at Lin Xintong, but she remained silent. By doing so, she was silently agreeing with Yi Yun’s words.
This decision was a result of Yi Yun’s discussion with her through a Yuan Qi transmission.
Be it the so-called hundred years of reclusive training or the severance of their relations with the Lin family, it was all a form of protecting the Lin family.
Now, Lin Xintong and Yi Yun had killed more than ten elites. Furthermore, with them obtaining the Great Empress’ inheritance, their identities were extremely sensitive. It was inappropriate for them to return to the Lin family.
The Lin family was already a first class faction in the Tian Yuan world, but there were too many first class factions in the Tian Yuan world. It was nothing much to offend the Shentu family clan alone, but once several factions targeted them and jointly attacked the Lin family, the Lin family was very likely to end up being destroyed.
By severing their ties with the Lin family and entering reclusive training in the Great Empress mystic realm for a hundred years, this would make it meaningless for these family clans to attack the Lin family.
Of course, Yi Yun and Lin Xintong would not really remain in the Great Empress mystic realm for a hundred years of reclusive training. A warrior’s growth was not simply a result of reclusive training. It required lots of experiences that toughened them, as well as battles. Only through these did one’s outlook develop and expand. These things could not be obtained in a safe, reclusive environment.
Lin Xintong and Yi Yun were only using this method to tell people that they would not be returning to the Lin family for a few hundred years.
When people heard of Yi Yun’s decision, they also understand what he meant. Momentarily, everyone had different thoughts and intentions. If Lin Xintong and Yi Yun really went into hiding forever, they really could not do a thing.
And if their family clans really attacked the Lin family, it would be extremely unwise. Not only would they not gain any benefits, but once Yi Yun and Lin Xintong matured and became peerless Great Emperors, they would return and pay them back. When that happened, their factions would collapse as a result.
“This Yi Yun actually managed to think of such a method. He resolved what would have been a bloodbath against him without even batting an eyelid. However… since he is able to do so, does that mean that he can control the Great Empress mystic realm and is free to enter and leave whenever he wants?”
The man surnamed Xue figured this out from Yi Yun’s words. If that was the case, then wouldn’t the Great Empress mystic realm become like Yi Yun and Lin Xintong’s garden? With the Great Empress mystic realm backing them, who could go against them?
They originally thought that once Lin Xintong and Yi Yun came out, there would be a battle for the inheritance, causing their deaths, but from the looks of it, it was unlikely that would happen.
The man surnamed Xue was jealous but helpless about it. For a sixteen-year-old person to kill Shentu Nantian, and a daughter of Heaven, who had unfathomable powers and was likely to become the second ancient Great Empress, as long as they had time, it was inconceivable to what extent they would mature into.
From the looks of it, it was better to befriend them now!
Many people had similar thoughts.
And at that moment, Yi Yun waved at Lin Xiaodie and company, and said, “Follow me.”
After saying that, Yi Yun walked towards the God Advent Tower. Lin Xiaodie and company looked at each other and naturally followed. Under the watchful eyes of everyone, they stepped into the God Advent Tower’s entrance, and following that, the entrance slowly closed.
Seeing this scene, the crowd were increasingly convinced that Yi Yun and Lin Xintong had obtained the ability to control a portion of the arrays in the Great Empress mystic realm, allowing them free access.
This made many of them turn red with envy. Even though Yi Yun and Lin Xintong really had not obtained all the opportunities within the Great Empress mystic realm, with the passage of time, all of these things would likely end up in their hands anyway!
