Chapter 1641: Messing Things Up
And at that moment, Jiang Yuchan was walking with more than twenty people towards the Fey Blood Plains from the north of Heaven Fey City.
Jiang Yuebai and Jiang Yuchan walked right in front, while his guest mercenaries were reeling in excitement behind.
“Your Highness! Although our Fey Blood Plains is a beast colosseum, letting two warriors fight in the arena is not a violation of the rules, right? I really wish to face that Lin Yun in battle and see what he amounts to,” said a stocky man.
Jiang Yuchan glanced at the Fey Lord and said, “Combat between warriors is the business of a martial colosseum. That’s Third Brother’s business, so it’s best we do not overstep our boundaries.”
“What a pity. However, just using Fey beasts against that punk would be sufficient. Who knows, he might have already been ripped to pieces. Hahaha,” said the stocky man.
However, Jiang Yuchan shook his head. “Lin Yun is very powerful. I won’t be surprised if Lin Yun wins the first round.”
“Is that so…” The stocky man looked at Jiang Yuchan in surprise. He never expected Jiang Yuchan to think so highly of Yi Yun.
“Lin Yun is no fool. According to the intelligence gathered, he is indeed very powerful. The moment he arrived at Soft Clouds Mountain Manor, he snatched the position of housekeeper. He’s not someone to be messed with. However, he’s overly arrogant and is eager to make his mark. He wishes to make an example out of my Fey Blood Plains so as to flaunt his strength to the Blood King, all so he can win more resources to refine his pill. Unfortunately, he has underestimated my Fey Blood Plains.”
Jiang Yuchan scoffed when he finished his sentence. The Fey Blood Plains had been in operation for years. The amount of wealth and experience it had accumulated was unimaginable. If a human junior could mess up the Fey Blood Plains, it truly deserved to have its business ruined.
“Let him win. It doesn’t matter if he wins two or three rounds. I will cripple him afterwards, making him regret taking me as his opponent.” When Jiang Yuchan said that, he laughed sinisterly. “That sister of mine is overly naive. If I were her, I would have long drawn a line from Lin Yun. How can the Ruins Emperor feel assured making her his crown designate when Soft Clouds Mountain Manor thinks so highly of her brother from a lower realm, and what’s more, a human one.”
Jiang Yuchan never treated Jiang Xiaorou as a competitor for the throne. From his point of view, she was just too weak. Apart from having the Blood King backing her, she was nothing.
Just as Jiang Yuchan was speaking, a voice transmission suddenly lit up in front of him.
Upon hearing the contents of the voice transmission talisman, Jiang Yuchan was stunned. He knitted his brows tightly.
“What happened?” The surrounding guest mercenaries were somewhat puzzled.
“Lin Yun won indeed…” Jiang Yuchan said with an odd expression.
The mercenaries around him were not surprised; after all, Jiang Yuchan had already expected it.
A mercenary said in admiration, “Your Highness truly has a prophetic eye. This Lin Yun just joined Soft Clouds Mountain Manor, and Your Highness has already fully understood his circumstances. Furthermore, Your Highness does not belittle him just because he’s human. To be able to treat every enemy seriously is a quality of a wise ruler. Your Highness, you are far-sighted and great things can be expected from you.”
A mercenary immediately took the chance to suck up. As the saying went, flattery will always get you anywhere. But at that moment, the flattery failed. All Jiang Yuchan did was look coldly at the speaking mercenary.
The mercenary shrunk his neck back. Had he said something wrong and his flattery had suffered a miss?
Jiang Yuchan did not say a word. Instead, he sped up towards the Fey Blood Plains.
Everyone quickly followed. Moments later, they entered the Fey Blood Plains. Then…
They saw an astounding scene. In the arena, a Long Gui was slumped to the ground. Its tortoise shell had been smashed to smithereens. Two if its extremely thick legs that could ferry a continent were broken!
Due to the intensity of the battle, even the arena that was augmented by special array formations had been completely destroyed. Yi Yun was standing in the middle of the ruins.
Following that, he unhurriedly took out the Fey chaining lock and Fey beast bag before imposingly capturing the Long Gui.
Following that, he flicked his finger and opened a spatial passageway. The Fey beast bag was gone! It was unknown where it went either.
Apart from Jiang Yuchan, the rest were dumbfounded in shock. What was happening!?
“He… He captured Baxia alive!?”
The mercenary who spoke gulped. The Long Gui was a Ancient Fey named Baxia. Its tortoise shell was thick and hard, giving it powerful defenses. Furthermore, it had immense strength.
But the moment they entered, they saw the Baxia’s robust tortoise shell smashed through with their own eyes! He had given the Baixia a crushing defeat before capturing it!
Lin Yun’s strength was way too horrifying. Back when they heard that Jiang Xiaorou’s brother was a human, none of them thought much of it. They never expected him to be that ferocious.
According to Jiang Yuchan, this was already the second Fey beast! It also meant that the first Fey beast had likely been taken away by Yi Yun!
It had to be known that every Fey beast in the Fey Blood Plains brought tremendous amounts of wealth!
These Fey beasts were powerful and rare to begin with. Capturing one alive was easier said than done.
The usual expenses such as feed and treatment a Fey beast required was a huger sum of resources. They were usually very carefully selected for battle.
Usually, warriors and Fey beasts of the same realm fought. Since a Fey beast had potent vitalities, they usually held the advantage when facing a genius their level!
Although death and injury was rife in the beast colosseum, most of the ones who perished were the challenging warriors. How could Fey beasts die so easily?
But now, they had already lost two.
“Is this punk capturing our Fey beasts to sell?” a mercenary came to a realization as he said in disbelief. That was actually possible?
Typically, few warriors were able to kill the Fey beasts in battle, much less one capture alive. They never imagined that this was possible.
However, the moment he said that, he was given a cold glare by Jiang Yuchan. He immediately jumped in fright and quickly shut his mouth.
He recalled that back in Yuchan Manor, Jiang Yuchan had mocked Yi Yun’s stupidity of coming to the Fey Blood Plains to bet on him winning, but the scale at which he thought was too small. Now, he realized that Yi Yun was here to capture Fey beasts for sale. Wasn’t this a smack in Jiang Yuchan’s face?
“Next battle, have a quasi-Fey Thearch Fey beast join the battle! Kill him!” Jiang Yuchan said coldly.
Everyone was alarmed when they heard him. A quasi-Thearch Fey beast was already the strongest Fey beast of their Fey Blood Plains.
As for real Fey Thearch level Fey beasts, they had transcended nine tribulations, so their strength was equal or far superior to the Luo King. How was it possible for the Fey Blood Plains to have the means to nurture them?
Furthermore, nurturing a Fey Thearch level Fey beast was pointless. This was because the Fey Thearchs of Heaven Fey City would not come to the Fey Blood Plains to begin with. Heaven Fey City only had about twenty Fey Thearchs in total!
These Fey Thearchs each held power over a faction. They held each other in balance as their sects competed. Taking the Blood King as an example, although he had a vendetta with the Luo King, it would be inelegant for the mighty Blood King to mess things up at a faction belonging to the Luo King. It was akin to a grudge between adults where one of the adults went to hit the child of the other.
Even if the Blood King thought nothing of his reputation and wreaked havoc in the Fey Blood Plains, the Luo King would not sit idle either. He would appear immediately. And it was quite impossible for the Blood King to fight the Luo King.
However, Yi Yun was different. He was a junior, a child in his own right. For a child to fight another child, it was only right and natural.
After Jiang Yuchan finished his sentence, he sensed Yi Yun look over. Clearly, Yi Yun had recognized Jiang Yuchan!
But Yi Yun’s gaze made Jiang Yuchan feel extremely uncomfortable!
All these years, Jiang Yuchan had met many geniuses. Many of them were his opponents, but despite that, with his background and strength, he would greet them politely and courteously.
Even the highly arrogant Second Prince and Fourth Prince, who had a grudge with Jiang Yuchan, had to wear fake smiles while making small talk, even if they were hypocritical or honey-tongued. Appearances had to be upkept.
Only Yi Yun treated him like thin air.
That feeling was as though he never thought of him as an opponent.
“Let the Sea Serpent devour him! Use the mystic medicine to stimulate the Sea Serpent’s ancestral bloodline.”
Jiang Yuchan’s voice turned increasingly cold. The Fey Blood Plains had specially concocted Explosive Blood Fey Pills which could temporarily raise a Fey beast’s strength. Of course, there was also very severe side effects. After a Fey beast ate too much of it, their realm would even drop.
The Explosive Blood Fey Pills were prepared for especially powerful opponents like Yi Yun. Jiang Yuchan had long yearned to kill him.
In response to Jiang Yuchan’s order, someone immediately moved to see it done.
Yi Yun continued standing in the arena with his arms to his back after capturing two Fey beasts. The second Baxia was worth at least eighty Chaos Crystals!
With the income from the Red Hou and the opening battle, he had more than two hundred Chaos Crystals. He had gathered an eighth of the wealth needed for the Myriad Form Shura Pill.
Indeed, robbing was the fastest way to extreme wealth.
Most critical of all, the robbery was completely in line with the Heaven Fey City’s rules.
Being powerful was the reason. Now, Yi Yun was using the Blood King’s title. It was not because he was far inferior to the Blood King in strength, but that he needed to borrow the Blood King’s might.
If Yi Yun had come alone to the Fey Blood Plains to stir trouble, he could have been threatened and suppressed by the Fey Blood Plains. If things went from bad to worse, perhaps the entire Heaven Fey City was not his match. As a human, it was not pragmatic to stir up the Heaven Fey City.
But now, things were different with Yi Yun having the Blood King backing him. The other factions in Heaven Fey City would not take action for this was a conflict between the Blood King and the Luo King.
If the Luo King appeared, the Blood King would appear as well. Furthermore, the Blood King was probably eager for the situation to blow out of proportion so as to find a reason to attack.
At this moment, the Fey Blood Plains staff were busy preparing for the third battle. They planned on dealing Yi Yun a fatal blow.
As for the numerous spectators at the Fey Blood Plains…
They were already completely silent. Prior to this, numerous people were clamoring for Yi Yun to be killed as though they were the owners of the Fey Blood Plains. But with Baxia being captured by Yi Yun alive, all of them shriveled up.
The Fey worshiped the strong. Now that a human which they typically held in contempt could easily trounce them. What else could they say?
The number of spectators gradually increased. News of Yi Yun’s continuous capturing of two Fey beasts from the Fey Blood Plains had spread. Many could not help but come take a look.
Human spectators came as well. Usually, human warriors did not come to the Fey Blood Plains since many of them led abject lives in Heaven Fey City. Most of them survived by doing business and they were lacking in strength to begin with; therefore, they were inviting humiliation if they appeared at highly public events.
