Chapter 1383: Refining the Mark
A blood cloud was far behind Yi Yun, but still engaged in relentless pursuit. Myriad God Patriarch’s perception stuck to Yi Yun constantly like a maggot.
But then, Yi Yun suddenly tore open space and tunneled into it. He was well-versed in spatial dimension laws so traveling short distances through space posed no problems for him.
Once he entered another spatial dimension, Myriad God Patriarch’s lock on him was severed.
It would be absolutely impossible for him to find Yi Yun again in the vast sea of people that milled around the city.
Myriad God Patriarch immediately sensed Yi Yun’s disappearance. He was momentarily surprised but almost immediately, he suffused a cold smile.
Yi Yun had indeed grown in strength extremely quickly. It had caught him by surprise; however, regardless of the methods Yi Yun employed, it was impossible for Yi Yun to escape from him.
Moments later, Yi Yun tore open space and suddenly appeared above a desolate wilderness.
However, Yi Yun immediately felt a jolt in his heart. He could still sense Myriad God Patriarch’s gaze on him despite his tunneling through space and creating a huge distance between them.
“This darn bastard…” The glint in Yi Yun’s dimmed. Myriad God Patriarch had likely used a mystic technique to completely lock onto him.
Even if he were to enter another space, he would still be discovered by Myriad God Patriarch once he came out.
This made tunneling through space lose any meaning. Yi Yun flew rapidly as he headed into the distance.
After a day and night, Yi Yun had already covered an unknown distance. As for Myriad God Patriarch’s aura, it was constantly tailing him from far away.
At that moment, Yi Yun’s speed suddenly began to slow down.
“After expending so much Yuan Qi over such a long period of time, that little bastard must not have much Yuan Qi left,” thought Myriad God Patriarch.
But just as he had such a thought, his expression changed into one of shock.
Yi Yun’s speed shot up abruptly and it was still accelerating. He was even faster than he previously was.
Could it be that Yi Yun had not been giving his all this whole time? Not only that, he should have long used up his Yuan Qi. So how was he able to produce such a surge in speed?
Following that, Yi Yun continued to maintain that high speed.
Myriad God Patriarch became more and more alarmed. Such expenditure of energy would have drained an average Supremacy a long time ago; yet, Yi Yun seemed to have an endless reserve of Yuan Qi.
Slowly, Myriad God Patriarch had no choice but to admit one truth: Yi Yun was great at escaping.
Instead, the pursuit was beginning to take its toll on Myriad God Patriarch. He was about to suffer a relapse from his old injuries, the terrible ones inflicted by Old Snake.
And once he came to even a momentary stop, Yi Yun would fly far into the distance like an arrow.
“How does he do it!?” Myriad God Patriarch’s eyes were cold. Regardless of how good Yi Yun was at escaping, he was determined to not let him off.
He had already locked onto Yi Yun. No matter where Yi Yun hid, he had the means to find him.
And at that moment, in a mountain valley extremely far away, Yi Yun, who was escaping at full speed, suddenly came to a halt.
He stayed inside the valley and all the beasts in the valley prostrated themselves and trembled.
As he breathed, his abdomen sounded like rumbling thunder. His mouth and nose emitted sounds that resembled a dragon’s roar.
As he escaped, Yi Yun had used the Dragon Emperor Technique to stimulate his vital potential. Simultaneously, he had used the Purple Crystal to replenish his Yuan Qi so as to maintain an ultra-endurance. Even Myriad God Patriarch could not keep up with him.
However, Yi Yun knew that Myriad God Patriarch would never give up.
The lock Myriad God Patriarch had planted on him was not going away.
But in fact, while he was fleeing, Yi Yun had already begun searching his body using the Purple Crystal. Finally, he had discovered the method Myriad God Patriarch had used to hone in on his position.
Through a mystic technique, Myriad God Patriarch had planted a concealed mark on him.
Previously, Yi Yun did not have the luxury of time to deal with the mark while escaping. However, he finally had the time now.
Yi Yun sat down in the valley and began refining the mark away.
In the remote valley, dragon roars could be heard from time to time, and True Dragon phantoms would appear to fly in the sky.
At that moment, the recuperating Myriad God Patriarch suddenly opened his eyes. They were filled with anger.
“My mark!” He could sense that his mark was being refined away.
The mark was completely erased as Myriad God Patriarch let out a dull grunt. At the same time, he lost track of Yi Yun’s location.
His mark had been extremely well hidden. He never expected that Yi Yun would be capable of discovering it and even have the ability to refine it away.
Once he lost track of Yi Yun’s location, it would prove difficult to find Yi Yun again.
He was afraid that Yi Yun would flee further and leave the Martial Numinous continent.
This thought infuriated Myriad God Patriarch to no end. He reached out his hand and struck. The boulder beneath him was immediately pulverized as the ground beneath him sank ten feet. All life within a five-kilometer radius was obliterated.
These living being’s souls, flesh, and blood formed a bloody mist that surged toward Myriad God Patriarch. He opened his mouth and swallowed all the bloody mist into his abdomen. His corpse-like face immediately suffused an abnormal tinge of blood red.
Myriad God Patriarch roared as a hideous face manifested in the sky. It opened its mouth wide and bellowed as the voice rumbled far into the distance…
Just as a blood-colored worm leaped up, it was caught by Yi Yun.
He squeezed, and the blood-colored worm immediately let out a tragic cry, transforming into a bloody mist. Amid the bloody mist, Yi Yun even saw Myriad God Patriarch’s furious face.
However, with a flick of Yi Yun’s finger, the bloody mist was burnt to nothingness. The indignant face of Myriad God Patriarch was also burnt away.
Yi Yun had finally escaped Myriad God Patriarch after vanquishing the mark.
“It’s quite impossible to save Wang Mu’s wife now. Apart from Myriad God Patriarch, it’s likely that the Li family is also pursuing me,” thought Yi Yun.
However, it was also impossible for Yi Yun to simply give up the herbal garden.
Inside his God Advent Tower was Wang Mu.
“I was lacking the herbs needed previously, so all I could do was seal off Wang Mu’s vitality. Perhaps, I should seek out the missing herbs to awaken him first.”
Yi Yun muttered to himself.
He stood up and looked in the direction of Martial City.
Be it Myriad God Patriarch or the Li family, the last thing they would imagine is that Yi Yun would dare return to Martial City right after he escaped their pursuit.
Furthermore, Yi Yun was now certain that his judgment of Myriad God Patriarch’s present strength was right after his successful escape.
This also gave Yi Yun a little more confidence.
Yi Yun was in no hurry. He continued meditating in the valley for a few days before standing up when he was restored to his peak state.
He was millions of kilometers away from Martial City. He conjured a spatial mark and tore open a spatial corridor. Following that, Yi Yun’s figure flashed and vanished inside it.
After Yi Yun left, all the beasts in the valley finally dared to resume their normal activities again. It was as though a humanoid True Dragon had come to the valley over the past few days. The disruption of life’s natural order had repressed them into inaction.
