Chapter 1647: Tremendous Price
In fact, most Fey warriors focused on cultivating their lifeblood. Just like Heaven Earth Yuan Qi were related to laws, lifeblood powers were related to the body. Lifeblood could both nourish a body and be released as an attack.
The Fey cultivated in their lifeblood and had the advantage of their bloodlines. This was not something humans could compare with. Furthermore, the Fey also endorsed tough combat styles.
Most Fey warriors were unwilling to cultivate in mystic arts or array formations. It was the same with the Luo King.
He was a genius when it came to the aspect of bloodline in his youth, so his lifeblood powers left others in the dust. But his mystic arts were much inferior to others.
This was also the reason why Princess Chang was unhappy with Luo King.
Although Princess Chang did not say it out loud, Luo King could sense her attitude and guess at what she was thinking.
At that moment, he did not say a word. All he did was take a step back and give her his spot.
Princess Chang waved her hand gently as a faint blue halo enveloped Jiang Yuchan.
Princess Chang’s senses quickly probed Jiang Yuchan’s body through the blue halo. Then, her expression somewhat stiffened. Of course, no one could tell since her body was covered in a halo.
She was surprised to discover that there was an extremely complex power contained within the lightning and fire that Yi Yun had released. It seemed to possess an undying strength that made the lightning and fire constantly renew itself. That prevented it from being frittered away.
Also present was a terrifying Major Destruction force. Just simple contact with it would trigger an explosion that would destroy Jiang Yuchan’s body!
To extract the lightning and fire, brute strength was nearly impossible unless one could resolve the laws governing the fire and lightning.
“Your Highness, are you also at a loss?” the Luo King said with a voice transmission.
He was truly astounded at the moment. He had always been lacking when it came to the mystic arts, but Princess Chang was one of the better ones among the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins’ Fey Thearchs. She was about equal to some human Godly Monarchs.
If Princess Chang was helpless, that would imply that Yi Yun was terrifying.
“I’d like to help, but I’m unable to do so.” Princess Chang felt depressed as well. She had disdained the Luo King just moments ago, but now she realized she was not any better.
She looked up and stared deeply at Yi Yun. She realized she had underestimated the young man!
Not only was he strong, his nomological insight was peerless. In time to come, he would likely become a peerless Godly Monarch.
She could not treat such a person as an ordinary junior.
“Is your name Lin Yun?” asked Princess Chang.
“Yes. Greetings, Princess Chang.” Yi Yun cupped his hands.
“I mentioned that conflict between juniors should be resolved by them. Jiang Yuchan had offended you, so he deserves being reduced to this state. However, he is still a prince. Are you really planning on killing him?” said Princess Chang coldly.
Yi Yun said, “Your Highness, you are too harsh on your words. I only attacked in self-defense. I even stopped in a timely fashion because the Luo King arrived. As for Young Master Jiang Yuchan… I never expected Senior Luo King to be unable to save him. In that case, I will naturally have to do it, but to purge the poison of lightning and fire, I will need a special pill to protect the victim’s lifeblood and soul. And the cost of this pill is nothing to scoff at. With my present wealth, I’m unable to refine it and I’m lacking in a lot of materials…”
“Oh?” Princess Chang pricked up her brows. “Don’t tell me that the materials needed to refine this pills are the ones Treasure Fey Pagoda tried to purchase?”
The Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins’ Ruins Emperor spent most of his time in seclusion recently; therefore, many political issues were handled by Princess Chang. To put it more simply, she mostly managed the numerous Fey Thearchs in Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins. The other trivial matters were left to the other ministers.
Princess Chang knew of the Treasure Fey Pagoda’s mass purchase of materials. All of them were rare and expensive!
Even the Luo King would feel the pinch to pay for that.
“Not everything, just a portion of it,” said Yi Yun with a smile.
At that moment, even the slowest person understood what was happening. Wasn’t he fishing in troubled waters?
Yi Yun had repeatedly emphasized that a tremendous price had to be paid if he helped personally. It was to build up his case for his final extortion.
Many of the warriors present also knew of the Treasure Fey Pagoda’s list of materials. The rarity of the materials left people faltering. Furthermore, the more informed ones knew that Yi Yun had fought Jiang Yuchan because Jiang Yuchan had interfered with one of the items Yi Yun wanted to purchase—the Golden Feather Immortal Pistil.
Perhaps, back when Yi Yun left contingencies in Jiang Yuchan’s body, he already had the intention of extorting the Luo King! Furthermore, he had expected the Luo King to appear.
The Luo King’s appearance should have been a show of force. Logically speaking, Yi Yun was meant to be the one suffering.
But the opposite happened. The Luo King had appeared only to have his face figuratively smacked!
A junior had plotted against a Fey Thearch and had even succeeded. The seal which the Luo King had left behind had been easily removed by him. Yet, the seal he left behind was something even Princess Chang was powerless against.
This meant that Yi Yun’s achievements in mystic arts and laws were completely incomprehensible!
“Senior Luo King, this is the list.”
Yi Yun flicked his finger and shot out what appeared to be a purple piece of silk. It, along with the text on it, were a manifestation of lightning threads.
The Luo King narrowed his eyes without receiving the so-called list. All he did was stare at Yi Yun. People who knew the Luo King well knew that it was a manifestation of his anger. He was bent on killing Yi Yun.
He had disgraced himself completely and was now being extorted by Yi Yun. He would become the laughing stock of Heaven Fey City in the future!
“Senior Luo King, I shall bid you farewell for now. If you have any questions, you can always contact me.”
Yi Yun cupped his hands as he spoke.
Now that no out for the Luo King was provided, hoping for him to agree on the spot was impossible. However, Yi Yun thought nothing of it. He was determined; if he was not out to fleece the Luo King, he would not have bothered with Jiang Yuchan.
At that moment, the Blood King laughed out loud. “Luo King, I’ll shall take my leave as well. Thank you for your hospitality today. In addition, I heard that Xiaorou won a few hundred Chaos Crystals at your Fey Blood Plains. Why don’t you cash it out to her now!”
Before the Blood King left, he did not forget to rub salt in the Luo King’s wound.
Yi Yun clicked his tongue when he heard that. The Blood King sure wasn’t a magnanimous person. People who offended him did not have good days ahead of them.
With her father backing her, Jiang Xiaorou decisively went to redeem the Chaos Crystals. Yi Yun’s final battle with the black Sea Serpent ended with him bringing it under his control. It was naturally considered a win.
Having won three consecutive rounds, the dozens of Chaos Crystals which Jiang Xiaorou had brought had rose to seven hundred.
This was quite a huge sum too.
Her brother was truly impressive. They had been bullied by Jiang Yuchan in the beginning, but not only had Yi Yun won a huge sum of Chaos Crystals, it was even possible for him to earn priceless materials. It had even gratified the Blood King. It was really quite a earth-shaking move.
“Punk, when we return to the Blood King Palace, let’s have a drink! I have an excellent thousand-year brew that I’ve been stashing away for an occasion like this,” said the Blood King happily.
Yi Yun naturally agreed.
Beside them, Jiang Xiaorou could tell very clearly that her father completely acknowledged Yun’er after today’s turn of events. Furthermore, it was an act of appreciation and partiality. If not, he would not have invited Yi Yun to drinks.
