Chapter 1676: Smacking Faces Through His Capabilities
“Patriarchs, I do not have any intention of making the ancient Heaven Fey my enemy. The Luo King and I had a private grudge and returning eye for eye is perfectly justified, isn’t that so?” Yi Yun said with a smile.
The two patriarchs, Grand Supremum and Grand Primordium, remained silent. They didn’t wish to say a word either. Their faces have been figuratively smacked so badly that they could not afford to mar their reputation further.
As the spokesperson of the two patriarchs, Ruins Emperor Jiang Jiuzhu had no choice but to fly out of the Ruins Emperor Palace and face Yi Yun.
Upon seeing this human junior, Jiang Jiuzhu felt conflicted.
Just days ago, he had looked down upon Yi Yun from a domineering position.
Back then, he even believed that Yi Yun was being too sensational by bringing attention to himself. It was like a child carrying gold in a busy city. Without sufficient strength, he had showcased the Myriad Form Shura Pills and even attempted to negotiate with the ancient Heaven Fey. It was utterly foolish.
But now, he had to look up to Yi Yun. Even he was no match for Yi Yun.
This was still with Yi Yun not being a Godly Monarch. He would only be more terrifying if he broke through!
“What do you want?” Jiang Jiuzhu knew that for Yi Yun to return after killing Jiang Luo, he naturally had matters to discuss.
“Your Majesty, I’m still interested in the Myriad Form Shura Pills you mentioned.”
Back when Jiang Jiuzhu summoned Yi Yun, he had offered to provide the materials for Yi Yun to refine the Myriad Form Shura Pills.
After the pills were formed, they would be split proportionately.
This suggestion could be said to be win-win.
Yi Yun originally did not have much need for Myriad Form Shura Pills after his first consumption, but now, Yi Yun’s cultivation level had reached the half-step Godly Monarch realm. His body had undergone the catharsis of the Chaos Heavens’ Heavenly Tribulation and he was in need of large amounts of energy to consolidate his foundation.
If he could consume enough Myriad Form Shura Pills, he would greatly shorten the process.
Upon hearing Yi Yun’s words, Ruins Emperor wore an ugly expression.
Yi Yun had just killed Luo King, but he was completely ignoring the matter and instead, negotiated with the ancient Heaven Fey so openly and brazenly.
Sadly, the Ruins Emperor did have the intention to keep Yi Yun behind to refine the pills. If that happened, he had the slim chance of becoming the third patriarch of the ancient Heaven Fey.
The Luo King’s death only served to embarrass the ancient Heaven Fey.
To make the Ruins Emperor really hate Yi Yun to the death would be a joke. He did not have any deep ties with the Luo King. His death meant little to him.
Yi Yun had naturally pinpointed this. He said via a voice transmission, “I can keep the pill refinement a secret. The warriors of Heaven Fey City will not know of it, nor will it embarrass you. Your Majesty and Patriarchs, what say you?”
Yi Yun would appear to leave the ancient Heaven Fey on the surface, or at the very least, vanish from everyone’s sights to prevent the ancient Heaven Fey from being put in a difficult position.
The Ruins Emperor remained silent for a long while before asking with a voice transmission, “What percentage of the pills do you want?”
“Thirty percent! It isn’t much. After my breakthrough, the quality of the refined pills would far exceed the previous batch.”
“Thirty percent won’t do! You just killed Jiang Luo. Do you think we, the ancient Heaven Fey, are pushovers? Do you think there’s no price to pay for killing Jiang Luo?” Ruins Emperor said coldly. Yi Yun had originally negotiated for ten percent early on, but now, he was adding another twenty percent.
“I will not compromise on thirty percent, or we can forget about it. I’m not adamant on having the Myriad Form Shura Pills.” Yi Yun was firm. “Jiang Luo exposed my identity, hoping for the Celestials to pursue me. My killing of him is only right. Do you really believe that I should swallow insult before your ancient Heaven Fey and allow myself to be schemed against?”
Yi Yun’s words stunned Jiang Jiuzhu.
Yi Yun was right. As the ancient Heaven Fey was too powerful, they were already accustomed to being in command. They were used to other factions yielding and compromising.
Once one showed any intention to disobey, they would be met with the swift retribution and repression from the ancient Heaven Fey.
But Yi Yun alone was able to stand equal to the ancient Heaven Fey!
His future was without limit. Why should such a terrifying powerhouse yield to the ancient Heaven Fey?
To put it bluntly, why did he need to apologize when he had smacked faces through his own capabilities?
Jiang Jiuzhu did not say a word. He looked squarely at Yi Yun who represented a terrifying power, a human that the ancient Heaven Fey could not afford to offend.
He even dared to be at odds with the Celestials, much less the ancient Heaven Fey.
Just as the Ruins Emperor was about to say something, Patriarch Grand Supremum’s voice sounded in his ear. “If it’s thirty percent, so be it. However, he needs to swear on the Heavenly Dao that he must not be at odds with the Fey if we do not cross him. If he’s agreeable to it, I’m agreeable to letting Jiang Xiaorou become Crown Princess.”
Upon hearing Patriarch Grand Supremum’s words, Ruins Emperor sighed inwardly. He was destined to abdicate the throne.
As for Jiang Xiaorou, just her status as Yi Yun’s elder sister made her the next Ruins Empress designate. This sounded incredulous, but Yi Yun was worth that much. The two patriarchs thought highly of Yi Yun and even if he had the Celestials as his enemy, they believed that he had a high chance of developing his strength.
By the time Yi Yun became a Godly Monarch, it would be difficult to deepen their ties with Yi Yun.
Yi Yun could very well become a powerful being just like Human Emperor Lin Ming from ancient times.
In contrast, the death of a single Luo King was nothing.
Ruins Emperor frankly passed on the two patriarch’s conditions to which Yi Yun agreed easily. “Deal!”
Signing a contract with the Fey was something that had been agreed upon previously.
Regardless, Jiang Xiaorou’s roots were with the Fey. Yi Yun naturally did not wish to make them his enemy.
As for the two Fey Patriarch’s agreement to make Jiang Xiaorou Ruins Empress, it was with the intent to make Yi Yun help the Fey in the future.
It was considered a strategy placed in open daylight, one that Yi Yun was happy to see take place.
“I’ll refine the pills three days later!”
Yi Yun flew off after transmitting his sentence via a Yuan Qi voice transmission.
He was not suited to appear in public in Heaven Fey City or the Heaven Fey City’s imperial household would be utterly shamed.
Many warriors remained silent in shock even when Yi Yun vanished into the horizon.
In fifteen minutes, he had killed a Ghost Thearch and a Fey Thearch. It was just too terrifying.
It could be imagined that in days, Yi Yun’s name would spread throughout the Chaos Heavens through various channels!
Together with the matter of him refining a Heavenly Dao fragment in the Xuanyuan Dune, Yi Yun would be pushed to the forefront of the Chaos Heavens.
Of course, being at the cusp of the news would mean that numerous factions, especially the Celestial faction would target him.
The news proliferated like a storm.
Many factions in the Chaos Heavens focused on intelligence. They had created several long-distance array formations which were specially used for the transmission of information.
Although the Chaos Heavens was immensely extensive, in just half a day, the various top factions learned that Yi Yun had the stunning accolade of slaying two Godly Monarch-leveled figures.
And a day later, the smaller factions learned of it.
Following that, ordinary warriors began to learn of it bit by bit.
In time, news of Yi Yun was scoured by the various intelligence factions. They even knew that Yi Yun’s first appearance was in the Taixia Ancient Mining.
Back then, he was heavily injured and his strength was far inferior to what it was now.
However, the growth of his strength was astonishing.
