Chapter 206 – The Unsurpassable Ling Yun

“Yes.” Yun Che did not ignore Cang Yue’s murmur. He went straight to the point, and replied. “She is Yuanba’s sister, and is also my wife, who married me eighteen months ago. She’s seventeen this year… and her birthdate, is only nine days later than mine.”

But, he was using “Xiao Che’s” birthdate as a reference, and not Yun Che’s birthdate. He was basically unsure of when his birthdate was.

Cang Yue’s lips slightly moved, and then, she softly asked. “Does she… Do you… really not have any feelings for each other?”

This question caused Yun Che to go silent for a long while. Then, he faintly said. “During the few days after our marriage, I once tried to use various methods to nurture her feelings towards me. But, before I could see any results, an incident suddenly happened, which caused me to have no choice but to leave the Xiao Clan. She does not have any feelings towards me. At the very least, she does not possess the type of feelings between a man and woman, but she doesn’t treat me badly. As for me… I don’t dare to say that I don’t have any feelings between a man and woman towards her, at the very least, I can’t help but be attracted by her beauty, the atmosphere around her, and her personality. I even believe that, no matter which man were to get along with her, they will no doubt be attracted to her.”

“But, compared to love, I have more ‘respect’ for her. When she was twelve, she was selected by Frozen Cloud Asgard. She became a disciple of the Frozen Cloud Asgard then, and even their Sect Master valued her greatly. But she still stayed in Floating Cloud City until she was sixteen, and did not head for Frozen Cloud Asgard. Even though she was a girl, she was obsessed with cultivating, her talent was also at the extremely high, but in the key four years of foundation, she forced herself to remain in Floating Cloud City, all for the sake of completing the marriage between us…”

“This action of hers was to fulfil her father’s promise, so as to prevent her father from being known as a man who goes against his words. However, even more so, she did it to protect me, and to protect my grandfather’s reputation… After all, back then, I was still a cripple, yet she was a Frozen Cloud Asgard disciple that all people looked up to. There was a difference of a heaven and earth between us. If anyone from the Frozen Cloud Asgard were to appear, and announce her as a disciple of Frozen Cloud Asgard, she would have been brought away much earlier, and no one would think it to be too much if the marriage promise was broken just like that. No one would have criticized her father for going against his words. Rather, everyone would think it as a logical course of action. After all, compared to placing a fresh flower onto a piece of cow dung, it would be the most normal, most correct, and most definite choice as a person who have received the tender care from the Frozen Cloud Asgard.”

“But she did not do that… the rumors circulating around said that the Xia Family was unwilling to bear the name of a family that goes against their word but I understand that she was grateful towards my father, Xiao Ying, for saving her life, hence, she used four years of her precious time, and accepted our marriage, so as to protect my grandfather’s and my reputation. After the marriage, she still took my dignity into account at all times. When the two of us were alone, she did not allow me to touch a single hair of hers, but when there was someone else present, and I forcefully grabbed onto her hand, she simply endured. She was not willing to harm my dignity in front of others. And she clearly told me that I could take in any concubines, and she would not interfere. If I were to think of having someone else as my legal wife, I could divorce her at any time as well… So, no matter what, I am unable to feel any animosity towards her.”

Cang Yue quietly listened. Her feeling of awkwardness towards Xia Qingyue silently disappeared, and what took over it, was a feeling of admiration from the depth of her heart.

“It’s just that, my ‘relationship’ with her, is probably nothing more than this. And, currently, I have no idea if our names as husband and wife still exist.” Yun Che looked at Xia Qingyue’s back, and sighed.

“Why?” Cang Yue was curious.

“… On the day I left the Xiao Clan, everyone criticized me as trash picked up from somewhere else, that my marriage with Xia Qingyue, was a form of shameless deceit. They forced me to hand over the marriage certificate and tear it off to remove our relationship as husband and wife. I left the Xiao Clan soon afterwards, but before I left, I handed the marriage certificate to Xia Qingyue. As to whether she tore the marriage certificate after that… I do not know.” Yun Che smiled. His smile was stiff, which proved that he did not know of the outcome, but it did not mean that he did not care about it. He had never asked Xia Yuanba about it, because, subconsciously, he did not want to hear the answer that he was not willing to hear.

When Yun Che spoke to there, the sense of discomfort that welled up in Cang Yue’s heart because of Xia Qingyue, had already been completely extinguished. Rather, she hoped that Xia Qingyue did not tear that marriage apart. Because, only that way, would she, under everyone’s eyes, sacrifice herself to protect the very last of Yun Che’s dignity back then. After all, what she genuinely cared about, was not the relationship between Yun Che and Xia Qingyue, but only Yun Che.

The results of the profound strength of the three disciples from Frozen Cloud Asgard were quickly announced:

Shui Wushuang —— 20 years old —— Spirit Profound Realm level nine.

Wu Xuexin —— 20 years old —— Spirit Profound Realm level nine.

The former two Frozen Cloud Asgard disciples’ level of profound strength were not weaker than anyone from the Xiao Sect and Burning Heaven Clan. And from these results, after being startled for a moment, the people from Xiao Sect and Burning Heaven Clan heaved sighs of relief.

“In the previous tournament, Frozen Cloud Asgard came out with a devilish disciple, Mu Lingxue. Her level of profound strength was the highest in the tournament, reaching the peak tenth level of the Spirit Profound Realm, and it was her who defeated Juecheng. Although, in the end, she lost against Ling Yun, back then, Ling Yun had the profound strength at the ninth level of the Spirit Profound Realm. When discussing profound strength alone, no one in the tournament was able to compare to her. But, in this tournament, Frozen Cloud Asgard’s disciple with the highest level of profound strength, is equal to Jin’er, and also equal to Xiao Sect’s Xiao Kuanglei and Xiao Zhen… Hehe, looks like Frozen Cloud Asgard might not be able to protect their position as the runner-up in this tournament.”

The people of Xiao Sect also had the same thought, and Xiao Juetian said with a smile. “In the previous tournament, the disciple from Frozen Cloud Asgard had a high level of profound strength, which obviously pressured us to a certain degree, but this time, it’s actually a tie. Lei’er, looks like, this time, we have overestimated our opponent. The runner-up position, we will definitely obtain it!”

Everyone’s eyes landed on the third Frozen Cloud Asgard disciple, the young girl whose face was covered by a shawl.

Xia Qingyue —— 17 years old —— Spirit Profound Realm level eight.

In that instant, the audience was silent for an entire three seconds, and then, suddenly, a large wave of exclamations was set off. The audience, both old and young, even Ling Yuefeng from the Heavenly Sword Villa, instantly stood up from their seats, and looked at the notification revealed by the Profound Assessing Stone with astonished expressions.

Eighth level of the Spirit Profound Realm. Even though it was an extremely high level, in the four great sects, it was not really exaggerated. What shocked the people was her age… She was only seventeen!

A seventeen year old at the eighth level of the Spirit Profound Realm!

The number one expert in the younger generation, Ling Yun, when he was seventeen, he was also at the ninth level of the Spirit Profound Realm. And this girl’s talent, was actually encroaching upon Ling Yun’s!

“Who is this girl? Xia Qingyue? Why have I never heard of a disciple with this name in the Frozen Cloud Asgard?” Xia Juetian was no longer able to keep his calm, and said with a tight frown. He could not help but admit that, even though his Xiao Sect was powerful and prosperous, he was sure that his sect was unable to bring up a disciple to the eighth level of the Spirit Profound Realm at the mere age of seventeen.

“This old man has never heard of her before either. This girl is only seventeen, she must be a new disciple Frozen Cloud Asgard had accepted in the recent years.” Xiao Wuji said as his brows sank. “With her age, she will definitely be able to participate in the next ranking tournament as well… This old man had thought that the threat posed by Frozen Cloud Asgard has greatly decreased, but I did not expect that they would still possess such an astounding disciple. We must definitely put everything we have in this Ranking Tournament, otherwise, if she were to appear again in the next Ranking Tournament, although this old man is not trying to sell ourselves short, I’m afraid that our Xiao Sect, will not have any disciple capable of going against her.”

Xiao Juetian tightly frowned. He was not able to deny Xiao Wuji’s words at all.

“Eighth level of the Spirit Profound Realm…” Yun Che’s chest rose, as he took in a deep breath. Even he was deeply shocked by Xia Qingyue’s profound strength today.

“Uwaaaah… Big sister is actually… already… so amazing!” Xia Yuanba’s eyes widened roundly, as he let out an exaggerated yell.

“In the younger generation, among the male practitioners, no one is stronger than Ling Yun. This girl called Xia Qingyue, if she were to maintain her talent, before long, she will become number one among the female practitioners.” Qin Wushang sighed. He looked at Xia Yuanba’s figure, and once again sighed in his heart: Xia Qingyue and this guy, are they really siblings? One of them is at the Eighth level of the Spirit Profound Realm, while the other is only at the Elementary Profound Realm, this… this… this…

Not long after Frozen Cloud Asgard, Ling Wugou finally shouted out Heavenly Sword Villa’s name.

“Heavenly Sword Villa —— Ling Yun, Ling Feiyu, Ling Jie.”

At that moment, the Sword Discourse Arena once again quietened down. After all, this was the appearance of Blue Wind Empire’s true number one powerhouse. With Ling Yun taking the lead, he placed his hand on the Profound Assessing Stone.

Ling Yun —— 20 years old —— Earth Profound Realm level three.

Ling Yun slowly removed his hand from the Profound Assessing Stone and slowly left. Without a care about the noise that sounded like the roaring tidal waves surrounding him, his footsteps, his atmosphere, and his expression was as calm as the cool breeze, as though he was a pure and speckless white cloud.

The first Earth Profound Realm practitioner appeared in the Profound Strength Assessment, and at the same time, he was the only one in the entire history of the Profound Strength Assessment. This one and only one, was also not at the beginning level of the Earth Profound Realm, but had also reached the third level.

This level, was like a grenade, exploding in front of the eyes and hearts of the countless participating disciples, causing them to be completely dumbfounded. They could not believe what they saw, and did not regain their senses for a long while. Because, to them, it was basically an incomprehensible reality. A twenty year old at the Earth Profound Realm was so unreal, it was close to being a mythic tale.

In Blue Wind Empire, there were countless of Spirit Profound Realm practitioners. But, the number of Earth Profound Realm practitioners did not even make up a hundredth of that number. Because, when one entered the Earth Profound Realm, not just among the younger generation, but to the entire Blue Wind Empire, it was an actual step into the realm of experts. Even Qin Wuyou, who was also at the Earth Profound Realm, had the qualifications to become an instructor at the Blue Wind Profound Palace. If one were to regard going from Elementary Profound Realm to Nascent Profound Realm, from Nascent Profound Realm to True Profound Realm, from True Profound Realm to Spirit Profound Realm, as crossing over a large Realm, then, from Spirit Profound Realm to the Earth Profound Realm, was basically crossing over a different dimension. Not only did the difficulty of breaking through increase exponentially, even the difficulty of raising one’s profound energy, was several times much harder.

And Ling Yun was only twenty years old. Not only did he step into the Earth Profound Realm, he even reached the third level of the Earth Profound Realm! It was a realm which even a young practitioner who belonged to the upper levels did not dare to think of.

Just by the revelation of his profound energy alone, forget about obtaining victory over any of the disciples from Xiao Sect and Burning Heaven Calan, even if all six of their participating disciples were to go against him together, Ling Yun would probably treat it as child’s play.

In contrast, the astonishment of the people from Xiao Sect and Burning Heaven Clan only lasted for a few moments, before they completely calmed down. The current Ling Yun possessing the power of the Earth Profound Realm, was not something completely unacceptable. There was no other reason, it’s just because he was Ling Yun!

“In the previous tournament, Ling Yun, who was merely seventeen years old, took the top spot with ease. In this tournament, there’s basically no one capable of competing against Ling Yun for it. In the future, he will definitely become another Ling Yuefeng.” Qin Wushang sighed.

“Third level… of the Earth Profound Realm.” The corner of Yun Che’s lips twitched for a couple of times. “This guy, calling him abnormal is simply too courteous.”

After Ling Yun, was Ling Feiyu and Ling Jie.

Ling Feiyu —— 19 years old —— Spirit Profound Realm level nine.

Ling Jie —— 16 years old —— Spirit Profound Realm level six.

The entire audience also shook from the results of the other two beside Ling Yun. Heavenly Sword Villa, was after all, Heavenly Sword Villa.

And Ling Jie, was also the only sixteen year old participating disciple in this Ranking Tournament. Unlike Ling Yun’s calmness like the cloud, he was high-spirited, and his eyes were brimmed with excitement. His look of eagerness looked as though he wished to be able to immediately fight a couple of rounds with someone.

“As expected of Ling Yun’s little brother. This Ling Jie’s progress in this eight months, is not that simple.” Yun Che muttered to himself in his heart.

Right after Heavenly Sword Villa, the name “Blue Wind Imperial Family” finally sounded.

“Blue Wind Imperial Family…” After shouting the name, Ling Wugou suddenly paused. After fixating his eyes on the namelist for a moment, he continued to shout with a weird tone of voice. “Yun Che.”

  1. *shuffle*shuffle*
    Looks for rope.
    Clocks unknown weapon.
    Secretly escapes country.
    Finds translators and team hard at work.
    Fight occurs.
    Ties rope around translator’s and team.
    Kidnaps and tells them them
    One chapter per meal!
    Now get to work my slaves!

    1. Yeah. I expect we’ll get that from the majority of people, hopefully the main thrust of it only lasts a chapter. Probably a little more for his first two fights. All his challengers will just be called trash for not being able to take him out.

      Only people that will probably support him are the ones that came with him, Little Fairy, his wife, and the two Heavenly brothers. The brothers might be shocked that he’s jumped seven levels since they last saw him. The kid will probably jump at people that make fun of his ‘Boss’.

    2. I’m thinking/hoping that the looking down on in so blatantly obvious, that most of it is done in the next chapter, and then we can get some good clean… no, some good messy fighting
      with the difference in spirit levels etc only being mentioned briefly at the start of a fight and briefly in the post-fight gloating 😀

  2. Yes yes, look at him only true profound, what a joke, he will embarrass himself really bad, looks like blue wind imperial family will become the biggest laughingstock in a million years and so on and so on

    can we just skip this and go to his first battle?

    1. That’s not what we’re waiting for, but the reaction from the people who know he’s OP as hell should be interesting. Also Xia Qingyue should recognize him, Little Fairy knows how scary he is, Ling Yun and his brother also know he was really strong half a year back and Qiingyue’s teacher should know who he is as well. If they piece it all together, his cover could be blown as the person who gave his wife that major boost.

      3 people of Frozen Cloud Asgard know who he is, although Little Fairy doesn’t know he’s Qingyue’s husband as far as we know.

      1. Xia Qingyue and Little Fairy, both rush over, hug him, princess pouts and rushes over to hug him, suddenly he misses his first fight, FAR too busy establishing his harem

  3. Thanks for chapter 🙂
    Just gotta say though MC will probably get second place in my Opinion thats what i believe is gonna happen.
    few reasons why I think he’s only gonna come out second or else he wont make it into the top 3 and instead will be in the top 10
    1) reason is because I Don’t think he will get to fight that earth profound realm dude I think that 3rd rank earth profound ling Yun will get smacked down by MC’s wife because i think the necklace she was given was to supress her power until the final where she will take it off and release the power of the earth profound realm 3rd level or around the same as Ling Yun unless she might be higher then him because the way the Little Fairy said it when she was asked by Yun Che about her she kinda said that Ling Yun wouldn’t stand a chance against her. so in the end i believe shes gonna beat him down and hes gonna be injured and unable to fight Yun Che and end up 3rd
    2) reason is because continuing on the first reason MC will reach the final and just bow out against his wife since in the end first place doesnt really gain him anything that artifact of the sky PR is probably a weapon of some sort and useless to him and the armor??? he doesn’t need armor being a heavy sword weilder not only that it would make him weaker since he would be slower he needs all his speed he can get using a heavy sword so armor is the thing he wants the least as for 3rd place the way i see it that use quite useless to him i mean he was able to make better quality by himself only second place stuff that can possibly fuse with him will help him a little or else if even that wont benefit him he wont get into the top 3 at all he just needs to get into the top 10 the rewards are pretty crappy for him besides just by entering the top 10 with his low PR compared to the 7+ spirit realm is already enough to make blue wind profound palace’s rep to skyrocket and pretty much be equal to having One first place but thats just my opinion

    Now personally i dont think xia Yunba will ever use his tyrant profound veins but if anything i believe something might happen in the future that will force Yun Che to swap them out of him with his wife because i dont know why but i feel if anyone will ever put them to use it would have to be her though an event warranting the need would be required

    And finally I personally hope that Yun Che trashes all the Xiao Sect people and cripple them for they still owe him 1000 fold punishment!!!! 🙂

    Will be eagerly waiting for the next chapter thanks again 🙂

    1. ooh I like your idea of waifu going wicked-sick on earthrealm3,

      I think 3rd place is the only place he won’t come, opening his profound veins… is the work of an evening with an acupuncture needle, the prize is irrelevant,
      I think he can’t NOT be in the top 3, and as you say it doesn’t fit his style to fight waifu, so i think she has to lose to earthrealm3 and Yun che has to beat earthrealm3

      I’m still backing Yun che, but I’m intrigued by your suggestion, i’m thinking that bECaUsE it’s impossible for him to win… he’ll win, and I don’t feel like he needs all his speed especially with his heavy sword, just the strength to move the sword fast,

    2. For your second reason, i think he still needs the armor, usually, in these kinds of novel, the armor should automatically adjust with regards to the user’s body type for maximum result. meaning, the armor should never be a reason for impeding with the MC’s movement and power.
      For the first reason though, it is highly possible that MCwife hid her real cultivation with the help of the necklace and would probably trash Ling Yun and take the first place.. however, if she did not take the first place, it is still more likely that the second place would be given to MC. However, what happens if MC had an unexpected breakthrough during the tournament entering skyPR? Will ling yun still be able to stand his ground towards the MC?

    3. I don’t see how an armor would slow him down at all considering he already uses an epically heavy sword. The weight of an armor seems negligible next to that.

      I do still think he’ll come in second place however, but I think he might give it to Yuanba. Something about the ‘brain refinement’ part of the description made me think it might be used to help change Yuanba’s temperament.

          1. Aside from that, he still has that Emperor Profound Realm Dragon corpse. Technically, that armor may be useless to him unless he can’t find something to create armor for him from the corpse….

  4. I think he is going to advance to the 1st-3rd level of the spirit realm and then he will be able to open the second gate and use burning heart as well as the technique inside and he will be able to fight early earth level practicioners
    Especially if he uses dragon fault and phoenix flames

  5. All right, so 2 chapters for assessing strength of 4 major sects. Next chapter is obviously gonna be only about yun che being in profound realm and being ridiculed. Every single battle is gonna take at least 2 or 3 chapters. I can sense that this tournament is gonna take all 100 chapters of the volume.

  6. Thanks for the chapter 🙂 Hmmm….I wonder whether the translators have really enough time to read the comments… I mean there is so many comments and just reading them will take a long time.

  7. lol. And the cliff was large. The faces of everyone when they see a true profound realm 10th level amongst all these spirit profound realm people. Ah it’ll be just too funny.

  8. god i knew this would happen – an entire chapter for introductions!!!! & the next one is shocking stares & mocking noises over yun che’s cultivation!!! oh come on,bring on the matches!

    Anyway thanks for the chapter :3

    1. On that topic im actually wondering why Little Aunt isn’t also a ”Yue” does that mean she might Die??? plot twist or when they get married will her name possibly change to Yue. Doesn’t seem like All 3 having Yue in their name is a coincidence, at the same time as this being a harem thinking about it the girls hes manages to attract so far are 1- a princess, 2- a wife / Genius level disciple of a big Sect 3- A very pretty older Women she should be around twice his age ( Chu Yuechan) 4- low ranked at this point pretty much a peasant women ( Little Aunt) ( I mean shes been pretty much excluded from her little branch sect and thrown in prison she’s pretty much a peasant now) if you chose to include Jasmine who probably might be added at some point she’s pretty much called a God rank Human by the Dragon God when they talked. If others are added in the future im guessing their going to posses different characteristics then the ones mention. Actually it might be possible that he gains a beast / human form girl for his harem (aka the dragon god’s Daughter) as for other possibilities I wonder what they might or could be. 🙂

  9. Xia Qingyue —— 17 years old —— Spirit Profound Realm level eight.

    Yeah, right. We all saw that necklace given to her before, that was surely a suppressing necklace and surely lowered her cultivation, I’m sure that she is actually at earth profound realm 1-3.

  10. Xia Qingyue —— 17 years old —— Spirit Profound Realm level eight.

    At first i was surprised and asked myself why isn’t yun che in spirit realm after all he had 54 holes open, evil god blood, dragon blood, phoenix blood, a loli master, op heavenly item, and an arsenal of herbs he can use. How come he isn’t in spirit realm yet and I just remembered he started from elementary realm 0. If he was as powerful as Qingyue back then he would def be earth by now.
