Chapter 616: Tempted
“A flowery fragrance?”
Yi Yun scrunched up his nose and turned his head to look in the direction from where the fragrance was coming from. The flowery fragrance was very strong. It made people feel subtly intoxicated.
There were beams of light flashing in the sky, as layers of flower petals scattered on the ground. A white figure landed on the platform while its clothes fluttered.
The petals surrounded this person’s body. However, they were not real flower petals, they were light beams condensed from laws.
Flower petals condensed from laws could have such true flowery fragrance?
This scene was shocking.
When the white-clothed person turned around, Yi Yun was slightly stunned when he saw what the person looked like.
It was different from what he expected it to be. The white-clothed figure was a man. He was carrying a folded fan, and his facial features were intricate and perfect. His skin was delicate and white. Even women would feel ashamed in comparison.
The man scanned the crowd on the platform with his pair of narrow eyes. His gaze swept past Yi Yun as well, and when their eyes met, he smirked, revealing a sinister-looking smile.
After that single glance, he no longer looked at Yi Yun again.
“This person… ” Yi Yun frowned.
He could feel that the other party’s cultivation level wasn’t high, but the aura he gave off was immensely powerful. Also, there were Dao fluctuations coming from his body. This was a manifestation of his profound understanding towards the Dao and Truth.
“It’s Lord Feng Ming!”
“It’s just the Blackstone Trials and Lord Feng Ming actually came. Usually, he wouldn’t come, so why… ”
The Heavenly Blood Union members all looked very respectfully at the white-clothed man.
The white-clothed man look liked he was in his twenties. He was part of the same generation as the rest, but… air and feeling he exuded, made it seem like he was someone from the senior generation. They were not on the same level.
“Feng Ming?” Wei Chiwei, who was standing beside Yi Yun, was very surprised. “I know that person. He is a Reincarnator!”
Yi Yun slightly narrowed his eyes.
By cultivating the “Heavenly Dao Reincarnation Grand Technique” and reincarnating several times, such a person could accumulate talent and insight into the Dao, so it was not a surprise that he would have such a bearing in his twenties.
“Perfect Dao Seed realm… Just slightly higher than me by a small realm. This small difference in cultivation level is nothing much to me. I wonder how my strength compares to his.”
Yi Yun had such thoughts. If anyone heard his thoughts, they would have thought that he was crazy.
Even though Yi Yun had defeated Gongsun Hong using one saber strike, when compared to Reincarnators by others, he was considered to be a firefly in front of a radiant moon. There no comparison in their hearts.
One was a immortal reincarnated, while the other had the body of a mortal. Was there any comparison?
“Invincible amongst people of the same realm. You have to have some ability to dare make such a claim, but compared to the 12 Empyrean Heavens… ”
Yi Yun recalled the Azure Yang Lord’s description. The Blood Moon were like gods to the eyes of the people of the Tian Yuan world, but in the eyes of the Azure Yang Lord, they were nothing.
As for everyone else other than Yi Yun, even the stubborn Wei Chiwei looked at Young Master Feng Ming with reverence and envy.
To them, Lord Feng Ming’s position was unattainable. In many ways, it even made people suffer from an inferiority complex.
After Feng Ming appeared, there more three figures flew out. Two of them were men and the other was a woman. When they appeared, every step of theirs landed on empty space, but Dao patterns would appear when that happened.
Water and Fire, Wind and Lightning. The male and female in front cultivated two laws.
As for the last person, he had a well-proportioned body. His toned muscles were very apparent. He had a resolute look, and every step he made caused a tiny ripple in the void. It was as if he was walking on water.
Light warped around this person’s body. The warping was not because of the light itself, it was because the spatial dimensions around this man was curved.
Spatial dimension laws!
People looked at him with burning desire in their eyes This was the spatial dimensions law that was pretty much lost in the Tian Yuan world. And in the Martial Alliance, there were such ancient heritage kept.
And only in the Martial Alliance was there such spatial dimension laws heritage!
Immediately, many people, who had joined the Heavenly Blood Union, felt privileged. They felt lucky to be born in this era, and to be allowed to enter the Heavenly Blood Union. This gave them a chance to cultivate such ancient heritage.
If they could learn the “Heavenly Dao Reincarnation Grand Technique” and obtain the heritage of the spatial dimension laws, then no matter how profound the spatial dimension laws were, they would still have a lot of time and youth to learn it.
This way, they too could become a figure like an Reincarnator, becoming the strongest cultivators in the Tian Yuan world!
Those who joined the Martial Alliance were bound to have their ambitions, let alone the Heavenly Blood Union members. Even Wei Chiwei’s gaze became one with burning desire when he saw the stout man.
He was envious!
Who wouldn’t envy such powerful strength?
“You want to learn it?” Yi Yun noticed Wei Chiwei’s reaction and asked casually.
“Yes… ” Wei Chiwei took a deep breath before speaking.
“However… What isn’t fated to be mine, isn’t mine.”
Wei Chiwei knew very well that many Heavenly Dao Union members went crazy and envious over these ancient heritage. And for that, they paid a huge price several times. This was just human nature.
In such an environment, it was most likely that most people would make such a choice.
However, even if the heavy prices were paid, the hopes of obtaining these heritages were still very slim.
Four people appeared on the platform consecutively, and they were all Reincarnators.
The strong were worshiped in a martial world. To those elites from large factions, they could only be deferential when encountering people who had strength that far exceeded theirs.
After the four Reincarnators, another person flew onto the platform.
That person wore a mask and had a cold aura.
He was familiar to Yi Yun. He was the masked man who possessed Shentu Nantian’s body.
As an Inspector of the Martial Alliance, the masked man’s position was equivalent to the four Reincarnators. The five of them stood in a row, with an overbearing aura.
“Dear Junior Brothers and Sisters.” Young Master Feng Ming had a faint smile. He walked in front of everyone and said with a soft and pleasant voice. His words felt like a gentle Spring breeze.
The Heavenly Dao Union members below the platform had a huge gap in identity compared to him, yet he appeared to be approachable. This made many of them grow fond of Young Master Feng Ming.
“These Blackstone Trials will be a golden opportunity for some of you. This trial will not exist in the next millennium.”
“It might be called a trial, but it is actually a mission. For this, the Heavenly Blood Union will reward you handsomely, and one of the rewards include the ‘Heavenly Dao Reincarnation Grand Technique’. Anyone who contributes greatly can obtain it.”
The Heavenly Blood Union members immediately stared with widened eyes when they heard this.
“’Heavenly Dao Reincarnation Grand Technique’”?
This cultivation technique’s power was without a doubt high. The elites present were all filled with awe towards the Reincarnators in the platform, but not all of them were convinced.
Some people believed that if they obtained a cultivation technique like ’Heavenly Dao Reincarnation Grand Technique’, they too would be able to get that far, or even be better than those Reincarnators.
This included the ordinary members who did not join the Heavenly Blood Union, their eyes had lit up. They longed for the “Heavenly Dao Reincarnation Grand Technique”, but they did not wish to forgo their freedom.
A large part of the reason was because it was not guaranteed that they would obtain what they wanted even if they were to join the Heavenly Blood Union.
And now, the opportunity was here.
Compared to the other elites, Yi Yun was naturally unmoved. What he was concerned about was that the trial was a mission as Feng Ming had said…
What sort of mission would it be?
As if answering Yi Yun’s question, Feng Ming said again, “Today, standing here, I’ll be choosing a vanguard! What you would be doing might even concern the fate of the Tian Yuan world.”
When Feng Ming said that, the crowd was stunned.
The fate of the Tian Yuan world was involved?
This must be a joke. As members of the younger generation, how could they shoulder this responsibility?
Many were in disbelief, but Feng Ming carried on. “I know you are doubting me. But when the Blackstone Trials begin, the doubts in your heart will be removed.”
“Furthermore… for this Blackstone Trials, as the concerns are grave… it only allows people from the Heavenly Blood Union to participate. The Heavenly Dao Union’s ordinary members are not to participate in it. Those who wish to participate can only do so by joining the Heavenly Blood Union.”
When Feng Ming said this, the crowd was stunned.
Especially the Heavenly Dao Union’s ordinary members. All of them were dumbfounded.
After talking so much about the Blackstone Trials and with their appetites whet, you then say that only Heavenly Blood Union members could participate in it?
Many ordinary Heavenly Dao Union members found it unacceptable!
The treatment these people received when they first joined the Heavenly Dao Union was not that different to the Heavenly Blood Union members. And now, the gap had increased to an exaggerated point. Furthermore, the tensions between the ordinary members and the Heavenly Blood Union members were becoming more highly strung. There were constantly conflicts. They had had enough of it.
They did not wish to obtain a top reward like the “Heavenly Dao Reincarnation Grand Technique” in the Blackstone Trials they looked forward to. They would have been satisfied with some ordinary rewards.
But now, they were not even given a chance. They were prohibited from joining!
With such an obvious contrast between the Heavenly Blood Union members and the ordinary members, the Heavenly Blood Union members naturally felt superior.
They began to feel that their decision to join the Heavenly Blood Union was wise. They were very pleased seeing the ordinary Heavenly Dao Union members were in a dilemma.
At that moment, Feng Ming spoke again. “I previously mentioned that this mission is highly critical. Without a soul contract, we cannot guarantee that everyone will be loyal. If anyone were to betray because of personal greed, the results would be disastrous.”
It was common for people to kill and plunder in mystic realms. To prevent that, the Martial Alliance enforced the signing of a soul contract. And for that, people also found it reasonable.
“Hence, those members who insist on not joining the Heavenly Blood Union, you can choose to form a security force. You will be stationed on the perimeter of the Blackstone Trials. Those locations require sentries… ”
When Feng Ming said this, the ordinary members of the Heavenly Dao Union were extremely unsettled.
Others could adventure for rewards, but they became guards? Based on what!?
“Young Master Feng Ming, I want… to join the Heavenly Blood Union… ”
At that moment, an ordinary Heavenly Dao Union member gritted her teeth after long deliberation. She was a girl in her twenties. She did not look pretty, but she had quite a disposition.
With the first, there would be the second.
“I’ll join… ” Another person said in an hesitant manner. Upon seeing this scene, the rest were also tempted.
Maybe they should not have been so adamant right from the beginning.
