Chapter 1661: Ruins Emperor
While most warriors in Heaven Fey City were casting their attention on Jiang Xiaorou, the truly important figures were paying attention to Blood King!
Heaven Fey City could be considered as home to many Fey Thearchs. Every one of them was someone who stood at the pinnacle of the Chaos Heavens. And at the Fey Thearch realm, any attempt to make further breakthroughs in bloodline was as difficult as ascending to the heavens.
Under such circumstances, any rise in strength was extremely alluring to every Fey Thearch!
Although Jiang Xiaorou was a genius, she was a junior in the end. If Yi Yun’s pills could raise a junior’s strength, making it priceless, it was still nothing extremely astounding.
However, a pill that could augment a Fey Thearch would be heaven-defying.
Now, nearly all the Fey Thearchs in Heaven Fey City were paying attention to the Blood King’s Heaven Fey totem!
That group included even the reigning Ruins Emperor—Jiang Jiuzhu!
In all of the Heaven Fey City, apart from the two patriarchs, even the Ruins Emperor, Jiang Jiuzhu, had only lit up four Fey beast marks, identical to the Blood King.
This difference was something Jiang Jiuzhu wished to mend even in his dreams. If that happened, he could even become the third patriarch of Heaven Fey City one day!
Yet, Jiang Jiuzhu had not seen any hopes of taking that step.
Now, the Heaven Fey City was about to designate the crown apparent since Jiang Jiuzhu had been Ruins Emperor for too long.
As the superficial lord of Heaven Fey City, Ruins Emperor could enjoy resources far greater than the other Fey Thearchs!
For instance, the Ruins Emperor had one of the nine array cores all to himself.
Most people believed that Heaven Fey City’s Ruins Emperor existed to manage Heaven Fey City and be its policy maker. In fact, Jiang Jiuzhu knew very well that the position of Ruins Emperor was in actual fact the candidacy to be one of the patriarchs of the Heaven Fey ancient Fey.
He had occupied the spot as Ruins Emperor for too long and had yet to make any significant progress. As such, both patriarchs did not hold much hope for him.
In fact, before Jiang Jiuzhu, most Ruins Emperors failed to become a Fey Patriarch during their reign.
The two patriarchs were able to look on the bright side of things. If one didn’t work, they just needed to switch to someone else and nurture them. After all, Heaven Fey City had been established for billions of years. There was plenty of time.
The search for a crown designate was, in fact, a signal by the two patriarchs. It was letting Jiang Jiuzhu know that it was time he abdicate the throne and not be a dog in the manger. Leave opportunities to the next generation.
With regards to this, Jiang Jiuzhu was obviously unwilling to accept it!
At that moment, he was staring intently at the Blood King totem high in the sky.
Compared to Jiang Xiaorou, the Blood King’s totem was undergoing slower changes!
But it was indeed changing. Every change was extremely difficult, as though it was through the expending of an immense amount of time.
Yi Yun’s pills ultimately did not help the Blood King light up his fifth Ancient Fey mark, but it created a faint connection between the four Ancient Fey marks that did light up.
Originally, the Blood King’s Heaven Fey totem was nearly empty in the center, but now, there were blood wisps that resembled bloodlines across it.
These blood wisps formed a blurry pattern that resembled a crude Fey demon.
Of course, that was only Jiang Jiuzhu’s feeling towards it.
If he had seen Yi Yun’s 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence, he would discover that structure of the patterns was somewhat similar to the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence.
Of course, the patterns themselves were very different from the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence.
In fact, the Heaven Fey Ancient Fey’s Heaven Fey totem was different to begin with.
For instance, the Blood King had embarked on the Indestructible Killing Dao; his totem was red like fresh blood.
The state and patterns on the Heaven Fey totem resembled its owner’s Martial Dao to a certain extent.
However, just the consumption of some pills had caused an abnormal change to the Heaven Fey totem. It was truly incredible!
Jiang Jiuzhu could sense that the additional patterns in the middle of Blood King’s Heaven Fey totem were no embellishment. They contained mysterious powers.
Yi Yun’s Myriad Form Shura Pill was indeed insufficient at lighting up the Blood King’s fifth Fey beast mark, but it had put in place conditions for the lighting of his fifth Fey beast mark.
The Fey Thearchs could tell that not only had the Blood King’s Heaven Fey totem changed abnormally, it was truly becoming stronger.
Pills that could be effective on Fey Thearchs were just too valuable.
“Send out a decree, I wish to meet Lin Yun!” the Ruins Emperor said to his aide.
“Yes, Your Majesty.” His aide bowed and left.
The phenomena above Heaven Fey Relic Pagoda continued for more than half a day after Yi Yun made his pills.
At evening, when the sun was setting in the west, the night sky resembled blood. All the Yuan Qi above Heaven Fey City had been swept clean after being absorbed thoroughly.
And at that moment, golden light radiated out from the Heaven Fey Relic Pagoda’s array core before laughter sounded into the firmaments.
“Hahahah! This feels great! Great!”
Blood King soared into the sky with a two-handed saber on his back, appearing right above the array core.
His lifeblood surged, turning redder than the sky painted by the setting sun.
“What a great pill. A Myriad Form Shura Pill is able to cast one’s foundation!”
Blood King’s voice was filled with arrogance as the flowing of his blood sounded like a tumultuous river. It could be heard even from miles away.
Yi Yun was nearby, waiting. He had watched the scene of the Blood King and Jiang Xiaorou internalizing the pills as a guardian. It was to prevent the Luo King from pulling any crazy schemes while the duo was having a breakthrough.
When the Blood King came out of his seclusion, his lifeblood surged into the sky, releasing tremendous might.
At that moment, one could sense his rise in strength even if they were not a Fey Thearch.
This only made many wish to see the true nature of the pills that Yi Yun had refined.
If they could obtain one pill for their respective masters, it would be a most meritorious task.
Many people were considering how they should interact with Yi Yun from then on.
At that moment, a rumbling sound was heard. A flaming chariot streaked across the sky and appeared in front of the Blood King.
The chariot was pulled by nine dragon horses. Standing on the chariot was a warrior in golden armor.
He had astounding lifeblood and sharp eyes. Everyone knew that he was of the Ruins Emperor’s Golden Armored Guard. Their ranks numbered less than a hundred people and they were close aides of the Ruins Emperor. It was also the elite company of the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins’ military.
The company was formed of powerful Fey Lords, but due to their skill at combining forces, their collective strength was able to repress even Fey Thearchs!
“By order of the imperial decree! Lin Yun is to enter the palace for a meeting with His Majesty!”
The Ruins Emperor’s imperial decree was simple.
But this sentence alone was enough to win the attention of many Fey Thearchs.
Emperors of mortal worlds had to attend morning court sessions every day, meeting all sorts of people. However, the Heaven Fey City’s emperor was different. Even the princes and princesses of the Heaven Fey City seldom met him. His summoning of Yi Yun implied how highly he thought of him!
As the Luo King watched this from afar, his expression turned nasty. Now that the Ruins Emperor had intervened, it meant that Yi Yun’s standing had been elevated. Any schemes against Yi Yun would only become harder!
