Chapter 1646: Princess Chang
With nothing to lose, the crowd watched with anticipation as the two Fey Thearchs prepared to do battle.
At that moment, be it Jiang Xiaorou or Jiang Yuchan, their breathing had stagnated as they turned nervous. This battle was of paramount importance!
Defeat would mean the loss of certain interests. For example, the Blood King might end up losing the Treasure Fey Pagoda.
The Luo King could lose the Fey Blood Plains or the Nine Tribulations Veranda.
Yi Yun narrowed his eyes. In terms of strength, the Blood King was likely the Luo King’s superior; after all, he cultivated in the Indestructible Killing Dao. There was nearly no genius in the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins who chose this path, much less cultivated it to perfection.
However, under the circumstances that their strength was nearly equal during a bout between Fey Thearchs, it did not necessarily mean that the stronger side would win. Certain ancient disk arrays, artifacts, talisman charms, and pills could reverse the situation.
The Luo King who had been a Fey Thearch a lot longer exceeded the Blood King in these aspects. Furthermore, the Luo King had a wide net of friends. If they really prepared for battle, the Luo King could definitely buy even more heaven-defying tools.
But at this moment, high above the Fey Blood Plains, a jadeite cruiser slowly floated in. A graceful figure slowly fleeted from it.
The figure was dressed in feathered clothes and her body was immersed in a blurry blue halo, making it impossible to discern her face.
But even so, the hundreds of thousands of warriors present tried their best to widen their eyes, hoping to identify her. In fact, they had already guessed who she was since the jadeite cruiser had already hinted at her identity—
Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins’ Princess Chang, the younger sister of the ruling Ruins Emperor!
She was deemed as the number one beauty in all of Heaven Fey City.
However, few people had ever seen her face. As the cultivation technique she cultivated in was unique, her entire body was immersed in blue light. Even a Fey Thearch found it very difficult to see through the blue halo. This was also why everyone was trying their best to see through the blue halo for a glimpse of her actual looks in the flesh.
However, when they stared for too long, their eyes felt a stabbing pain as they nearly lost their minds.
“Even Her Highness Princess Chang has been stirred!”
People were alarmed, but it was within reason. The Luo King and Blood King had appeared in person after all. Besides, both of them had a vendetta with one another. Once the situation escalated, the two would have a fight that could reduce the Heaven Fey City to ruins.
“Luo King, Blood King, this is a result of the younger generation. It pertains to the contest for title of crown designate, so it’s best you do not involve yourselves in it!” Princess Chang said in an indescribably pleasant tone, her voice clear and distant.
The Fey never had any scruples about mentioning the imperial power struggles since the throne of the Ruins Emperor was won through bloodshed.
The Luo King gave Princess Chang a glance. Many of the time, the Ruins Emperor did not make an appearance. Princess Chang would appear on his behalf, indicating his stance on the matter. After all, although there were many princes and princesses in the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins, few of them were true siblings.
Princess Chang and the Ruins Emperor shared the same father but different mothers. Therefore, they were naturally close with one another.
With Princess Chang having affirmed her stance, the Luo King did not say anything further.
Besides, victory was not certain for him. He had mentioned battling the Blood King only to save his reputation.
“A battle between juniors can simply be left to juniors…”
As Princess Chang was speaking—
Jiang Yuchan spewed out a mouthful of blood as he tumbled down the spectator stands.
The Luo King was astounded as he quickly teleported over. He grabbed Jiang Yuchan and was shaken when he probed his body.
Inside Jiang Yuchan’s body, interspersed within his meridians, flesh, and blood were fine threads. These threads were like nets that were embedded deep in his flesh and bones. Apart from that, there were tiny beads which hung on the lightning threads like cherries. Every bead contained potent forces that would blast Jiang Yuchan’s body to smithereens the moment it exploded.
“This is… Lightning and Fire?”
The Luo King’s brows twitched. The threads were lightning threads while the cherry-like objects were Fire pearls!
When he turned his gaze to Jiang Yuchan’s Fey core, he drew a gasp.
The surface of Jiang Yuchan’s Fey core was also covered in a layer of purple lightning threads. A portion of these lightning threads had even entered deep into Jiang Yuchan’s Fey core!
He attempted to strip the lightning threads, but any motion caused the color in Jiang Yuchan’s face to drain and his body to tremble. Even his Fey core appeared to be on the brink of cracking together with the lightning threads.
The Luo King turned his head at Yi Yun. “You!?”
The lightning net and fire pearls was clearly Yi Yun’s work. Yi Yun was the only one who had attacked Jiang Yuchan.
Lightning could be used in a myriad of ways. Warriors who were skilled in lightning laws could even weave lightning threads into cloths and wear them.
And after Yi Yun gained the Heavenly Dao fragment and mastered the Heavenly Dao laws, his means were already completely incomparable to the typical warrior’s.
This lightning net combined with fire pearls had Jiang Yuchan’s life in its grasp!
Back when Yi Yun stabbed Jiang Yuchan, he did not cause any substantial damage to him since his real intention was to plant the lightning net and fire pearls in him.
Upon seeing the Luo King looking at him angrily, Yi Yun said calmly, “Jiang Yuchan wanted to use a Godly Monarch’s psyche force to kill me. I naturally had to counterattack with full force. This Lightning Fire Sword is my killer move. Now that there’s some remnant fire and lightning in Jiang Yuchan’s body, I will need to pay a tremendous price if I’m to treat him. I think it’s best left to you, Luo King. Such a trivial matter should be nothing to you.”
After saying so, Yi Yun threw up his hands, completely ignoring the look on Luo King’s face.
The surrounding crowd shuddered when they saw this. Yi Yun was completely offending the Luo King!
Even with the Blood King supporting him, offending a Fey Thearch was never a wise choice. The Blood King could not protect him all the time. Wouldn’t the Luo King spare no cost to kill Yi Yun when the opportunity arose?
“Fine, well done!”
The Luo King fumed. He pressed one hand on Jiang Yuchan’s head as his lifeblood powers surged into Jiang Yuchan’s body.
Then, he extracted the lightning and fire bit by bit.
But at that moment, Jiang Yuchan let out a tragic cry like a pig about to be slaughtered.
His body convulsed as blood flowed out of his seven orifices. His expression was as pale as a sheet.
Jiang Yuchan was in extreme pain. He was a highly refined person to begin with. As such, he would never show such a pathetic side to him in public unless he he absolutely could not handle the pain.
What Yi Yun had left in him was too vicious!
The lightning threads reached deep into his intrinsic bloodline and right into his bone marrow. With the Luo King extracting them, he felt as though his bone marrow was being extracted. The pain was obvious!
Seeing Jiang Yuchan struggling continuously, the Luo King’s expression turned nasty.
He realized that he had no way of removing the lightning threads and fire beads.
It had nothing to do with how powerful the lightning threads and fire beads were; they were just too intertwined with Jiang Yuchan like viruses or germs that had invaded one’s body. Although those could be killed with boiling water, doing so would kill the patient as well. Therefore, many illnesses were incurable once one was inflicted with them.
The present Jiang Yuchan was in such a situation.
Even with all his powers, the Luo King was helpless!
The Luo King stood up and looked at Yi Yun once again. His gaze made him look like an ancient Fey beast that was about to devour Yi Yun.
However, Yi Yun thought nothing of it. He was still having a merry chat with Jiang Xiaorou while ignoring the Luo King completely.
“Luo King.” Jiang Yuebai was somewhat worried. “His Highness…”
At that moment, Jiang Yuchan was still in pain. What Yi Yun had planted in him was not immediately fatal, but it tormented him. Jiang Yuebai had watched Jiang Yuchan grow up, so his heart pained for him.
At that moment, everyone could tell that the Luo King did not have the means to extricate Jiang Yuchan from his pain. If he did, he would have done so a long time ago.
This left everyone alarmed. Yi Yun actually had such means!?
They recalled that the seal which the Luo King had planted in the black Sea Serpent was also removed by Yi Yun.
As such, the talent Yi Yun had in the aspect of planting and removing seals was above the Luo King’s!
“Do you think you can act this fearlessly because the Blood King is protecting you?” The Luo King’s Yuan Qi voice transmission sounded in Yi Yun’s ears.
Yi Yun looked at the Luo King and said with a smile, “Senior Luo King, what are you saying? As a junior, I can’t seem to understand you.”
Yi Yun had directly voiced out the Luo King’s sending of a voice transmission.
The Luo King had not said it publicly for fear of affecting his reputation, but Yi Yun had deliberately smacked him right in the face.
Luo King was raging mad. He had appeared today in the hope of taking back the black Sea Serpent, but he never expected to not only fail, but even see Jiang Yuchan at Yi Yun’s mercy!
“Luo King, don’t tell me you wish for me to treat Jiang Yuchan? I did mention that I attacked him because he wanted me dead. All I could do was counterattack. As for his injuries, I will require a tremendous price to save him. So it’s best you do it yourself.”
Yi Yun repeated his words, but when they landed in the Luo King’s ears, they were filled with sarcasm.
High in the sky, Princess Chang frowned as well. She had appeared to stop the fight between the Blood King and the Luo King. She had given sufficient reason for them to do so—conflict between juniors naturally had to be resolved among themselves. It was only right.
However, she never expected Yi Yun to be so insidious. He had taken the black Sea Serpent and ignoring the figurative smack in the face, he had trounced Jiang Yuchan. Not only that, he had even left contingencies in his body.
He had really gone too far. Even if Jiang Yuchan had been in the wrong, he did not deserve to be put in such a tragic state!
Therefore, without the Luo King making a request, Princess Chang looked at the Blood King. Her intentions were obvious; she wanted the Blood King to get Yi Yun to save Jiang Yuchan.
However, the Blood Jade feigned ignorance by completely ignoring Princess Chang. He was a ruthless person to begin with and one that was protective of his brethren. He did not care about reputation as well. Jiang Yuchan had intended to kill Yi Yun, so how was it possible for him to get Yi Yun to help him?
Princess Chang was exasperated. What was Yi Yun planning to do? Didn’t he know anything about making compromises after gaining an advantage? Did he really want to kill Jiang Yuchan?
Although Princess Chang was already biased towards Jiang Yuchan, her stature did not permit her to make the request.
She moved lightly towards Jiang Yuchan, grudgingly thinking to herself how useless the Luo King was. All he did was focus on cultivating his lifeblood and dabbled little in the mystic arts. If not, would he have failed to resolve a mere junior’s seal?
