Chapter 1142: Skyfox Zither Dao
Despite happening upon news of Lin Xintong amid a sea of people, Yi Yun had no idea where to begin his search. But at the very least, he knew that Lin Xintong was safe.
“Your Highness, thank you for telling me this news. It makes me very happy just to know that she’s alive.”
“Sorry for not being able to offer much help,” Princess White Fox said somewhat guiltily.
“Your Highness, don’t blame yourself. Also…regarding Luo Huo’er, does Your Highness know where she ended up?” Yi Yun was also rather concerned over Luo Huo’er. The spirited girl held an important place in his heart.
Xue Wuxia shook her head again. “It wasn’t easy for us to escape that tiny world. When we did, we were separated, so I have no idea where Huo’er is either.”
Yi Yun did not speak further. He expected such an answer, so there was nothing to be disappointed about. In fact, he had many questions he wanted to ask Princess White Fox, especially regarding that tiny world and Lin Xintong’s experiences over the past few decades.
Unfortunately, Yi Yun’s mind was a mess, unsure as to how to begin querying immediately. He decided to bid Princess White Fox farewell, and meet her another time to discuss the topic in depth.
However, just as Yi Yun was about to speak, a figure appeared in front of him. Zuoqiu Haoyu had flown down from the luxury box on the second floor.
Zuoqiu Haoyu floated in mid-air, standing high above Yi Yun. He said to Yi Yun, “Since this brother is Fairy Wuxia’s friend, you are also an honored guest of my Myriad City. Brother, you appear to be a talented person who would be great to befriend. I would like to invite the both of you to my luxury box for a seat. I wonder if the both of you might join me?”
Zuoqiu Haoyu spoke in a very polite tone, but Yi Yun was not in the mood to converse with anyone. He looked up and glanced at Zuoqiu Haoyu. He naturally remembered that this person had tried to chase him away just moments ago.
Yi Yun was typically not bothered by such trivial offenses, but he could sense a subtle look of contempt and disparagement behind Zuoqiu Haoyu’s humble and sincere eyes.
Clearly, Zuoqiu Haoyu wanted to get close to Princess White Fox.
Princess White Fox had a formidable master, knew City Lord Qin and was a blessed daughter of the heavens. Zuoqiu Haoyu couldn’t just casually invite her. In order to appear less imprudent, he swallowed his pride and invited Yi Yun as well. He wanted to use Yi Yun as a wingman, yet he belittled him. Considering these circumstances, Yi Yun naturally did not think well of Zuoqiu Haoyu.
He was already plagued by discordant thoughts, so he had no intention of entertaining Zuoqiu Haoyu’s feigned politeness. He said directly to Princess White Fox, “Your Highness, it’s not convenient for us to have a long chat today. I’ll be bidding you farewell for now. I will have a detailed chat with Your Highness at a later date. I’ll be staying in Myriad City for a while.”
With that said, Yi Yun turned and left. He did not even speak to Zuoqiu Haoyu.
Zuoqiu Haoyu was still floating in mid-air, looking down at Yi Yun. When Yi Yun turned around, the smile on his face stiffened. Was this punk leaving just like that?
Zuoqiu Haoyu was left hanging in mid-air, his eyes flashed with pangs of fury.
He could excuse Xue Wuxia being cold towards him as she was, after all, a blessed daughter of the heavens. It was only normal for her to have a superior air.
But who the hell was this punk? Zuoqiu Haoyu thought he was of superior status. He had already paid his due respects to come down and specially speak to the punk.
The two warriors beside Yi Yun were also somewhat confounded. They never expected Fairy Wuxia to have a deep relationship with Yi Yun. What’s more, Yi Yun had ignored Zuoqiu Haoyu in front of so many people. He could not even be bothered to reject him verbally, and instead completely disregarded him.
Zuoqiu Haoyu was one of the young masters that held quite a lofty position among the Myriad Pavilion’s younger generation. Did Yi Yun even consider the consequences of offending him?
Seeing the surrounding people’s astonished reaction, Zuoqiu Haoyu’s expression appeared as still as water. He did not speak another word as he quietly returned to his luxury box.
He took a deep look at Yi Yun’s back as killing intent flashed in his eyes. “Investigate this man for me!”
“Ru’er.” Yi Yun called out to Ru’er.
“Yes…Yes!” Ru’er finally snapped out of her daze. She hurriedly got on her feet and gave one last glance at Xue Wuxia before turning to chase after Yi Yun.
Ru’er thought to herself, “That fairy from before was truly beautiful. I wonder what relationship he has with that fairy…”
Xue Wuxia watched Yi Yun leave before sighing inwardly. Following that, her figure transformed into an ethereal white smoke as she returned to the front of the Heaven-class box on the second floor.
She took a look at Fairy Youqin and City Lord Qin and bowed slightly, “I was reuniting with an old friend. Sorry for being impetuous.”
“It’s fine.” Fairy Youqin said softly as a hint of curiosity flashed in her eyes.
City Lord laughed instead. “I never expected you to have a friend here. However, today is focused on you and Fairy Youqin having an exchange. If there’s a chance in the future, introduce me to that friend of yours.”
“Yes, Uncle Qin.” Princess White Fox looked at Fairy Youqin. She released the zither in her hands and left it in mid-air. Her soft and flawless fingers lightly touched the zither.
“Please give me your pointers.”
Like the howl of the wind, pattering of stormy rain, and the shriek of a phoenix that reached the nine heavens, Princess White Fox’s zither tune was produced. The people that were secretly in conversation in Heavenly Treasures Arch instantly fell silent.
All that remained in their ears was Princess White Fox’s zither tunes. The only thing they saw was Princess White Fox’s agile fingers.
Sound runes resonated from the zither strings like starlight that danced around Princess White Fox.
At that moment, a blue eye suddenly appeared behind Princess White Fox.
The eye seemed to devour all light. It grew continuously until it shrouded Princess White Fox’s figure. At that moment, she was like a galactic fairy who played melodious zither tunes in the vast sky.
Eye of the Skyfox!
Years ago, Princess White Fox had competed with Yi Yun in the Primordial Empyrean Heaven and she had summoned the Eye of the Skyfox. However, the Eye of the Skyfox back then was only in its nascent stage. It paled in comparison to what it was now.
The White Fox clan was adept at spiritual and soul techniques. Fusing her soul with Zither Dao was Princess White Fox most proficient domain of expertise.
And it was for this reason that she was acknowledged by her master, who did her best to nurture her.
City Lord Qin nodded as he marveled at her feats. He naturally knew of her background. Such a powerful Ancient Fey bloodline was not something humans could compare with. His friend’s disciple was indeed impressive. When compared to Paradise Chapter’s Fairy Youqin, they each had their own merits.
Fairy Youqin’s expression revealed a hint of seriousness. She could sense that her opponent had a natural talent in the soul.
“Sir.” Ru’er followed Yi Yun gingerly. Yi Yun appeared to be aimless and confused. He walked with a heavy heart.
Having suddenly received news of Lin Xintong, Yi Yun was delighted but he also felt a mix of other emotions.
It was unknown where the exit to that small world had opened to. The 12 Empyrean Heavens were massive, so how could he find Lin Xintong?
This actually made things much more difficult. Originally, Yi Yun believed that Lin Xintong was in the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven, but now she could be anywhere.
After a while, Yi Yun calmed his heart down.
“There’s no hurry. At the very least, I now know that Xintong is safe.” Yi Yun shook his head.
He had no means of finding Lin Xintong. He could only wait for the day when his strength was enough to influence all of the 12 Empyrean Heavens. When his name spread throughout the 12 Empyrean Heavens, Lin Xintong would naturally know where he was.
Yi Yun temporarily had no plans of leaving the Myriad Divine Territory. Ling Xie’er had nearly been wiped out because of him and Yi Yun had sworn to awaken her so he naturally could not give up.
“Ru’er,” said Yi Yun suddenly as he stopped. “Let’s return to the store.”
Regardless of how chaotic his thoughts were, everything had to be done in a slow and steady fashion.
Yi Yun still planned on staying in Myriad City. He needed to prepare if he wanted to obtain the three rare herbs in the exchange in three years.
As long as he could refine the Hollow Soul Pill, he would able to awaken Ling Xie’er from her slumber.
