Chapter 397 – Explosion of Wealth

“Dad… Save… Save me… Save me… I don’t want to die… Dad… Save me… Save me!!”

Xiao Kuangyun tightly hugged onto Xiao Juetian’s thigh. His entire body was trembling, his four limbs had long gone limp under intense fear, and he was unable to stand up at all. As a Young Master of Xiao Sect who usually enjoy an extravagant life, undoubtedly, he was extremely afraid of death. However, in the past, there had never been anything that could cause him to feel the threat of death, there were simply only people that feared him.

Xiao Juetian looked at his own son who was actually frightened to the point he had lost control of his bowels. His upright expression turned purple, wishing that he could kick him away. However, he was after all his own biological son, and he was even his most loved one. No matter what, he was unable to stand still and look at him die in Yun Che’s hands. He took a deep breath, and said to Yun Che with a cupped fist. “Little brother Yun, this humble Xiao clearly knows about the grudge between you and my unfilial son as well. That year, my unfilial son had set up a despisable ugly incident, however… However, at least, little brother Yun and your esteemed family are all safe and sound. The sin of my unfilial son, cannot be considered to one that results in death either. I request that little brother Yun, as a great man, be broad-minded, and spare my unfilial son. This humble Xiao will definitely remember this gratitude by heart, and will definitely greatly repay you.”

“His sin shouldn’t result to death?” Yun Che let out a cold laugh. “Then, do you know, why Burning Heaven Clan annihilated? In comparison, their sin, is actually much lighter compared to your son’s! However, in the end… from their Grand Clan Master Fen Yijue, Clan Master Fen Duanhun, to all of the clan’s disciples with the surname Fen, a total of about seventy thousand lives, all of them died without any burials!”

Yun Che’s words caused the hearts of everyone in Xiao Sect to clench. Some of their bodies even began to quiver uncontrollably, and even Xiao Juetian’s expression had turned terribly pale… He was very clear in his heart that when he headed to Yun Che’s wedding a few months ago, compared to the strength Yun Che had used to annihilate Burning Heaven Clan, it had once again increased by an extreme amount. With his incomparably terrifying growth speed, his current strength was definitely even more unfathomable… Annihilating his entire Xiao Sect was completely sufficient. After all, Xiao Sect’s strength was comparable to Burning Heaven Clan’s.

If he were to really act against the entire Xiao Sect out of fury…

This worst-case scenario had been thought of many times by Xiao Juetian. Currently, finally facing Yun Che who was here to collect his debt, he no longer dared to think any further. He lowered his posture to the very lowest, and pleaded. “Little brother Yun, the error of my unfilial son, indeed cannot be forgiven. This humble Xiao is extremely shameful for my incapabilities in teaching my son. However, with your current status and level, no matter how many tens of times stronger my unfilial son is, it’s impossible for him to possess even the least bit of threat to you, nor would it be possible for him to dare offend you again. If you act against my unfilial son, I’m afraid… I’m simply afraid that it might stain your status as well… If you can show mercy today, and let go of my unfilial son, my Xiao Sect will definitely deeply grateful, and will rever little brother Yun as our lord. As long as it’s little brother Yun’s instruction, my Xiao Sect will definitely use all the might within our capacity, and will definitely not hesitate to sacrifice our lives!”

Although in his words, Xiao Juetian was pleading for Xiao Kuangyun, everyone knew that he was pleading for the entire Xiao Sect. With Burning Heaven Clan as the prime example, Yun Che definitely had the possibility of annihilating Xiao Sect under his fury… After all, the thing which Xiao Kuangyun had done back then, compared to what Burning Heaven Clan had done, had offended Yun Che even more. After all, although Yun Che’s two relatives were kidnapped by Burning Heaven Clan, they were immediately rescued, and they were completely unscathed. However, Xiao Kuangyun had actually caused Yun Che to be chased out of his own home, and even caused his two relatives to be isolated for three whole years.

And Xiao Juetian basically did not dare to believe his own ears when he heard Yun Che’s next words.

“Mn… What Sect Master Xiao says seems to have a good point. If I were to kill this son of yours, not only will it stain my own hands, I will indeed gain nothing. And if I don’t kill him…” Yun Che held onto his chin, showing a thinking look.

Xiao Juetian felt as though he had heard the words of the heavens. These words Yun Che just spoke out, actually clearly stated that he wanted to let go of Xiao Kuangyun, and let go of Xiao Sect… However, naturally, he must have a huge benefit to gain. At this point, Xiao Kuangyun’s death had long been secondary, the main key was Xiao Sect’s safety! If they were able to use sufficient “benefits” to stabilize this death god, and had Xiao Sect escape from the shadows of this death god, then no matter what price it was, he could still accept it… After all, no matter how big the price was, it was a thousand, ten thousand times better than Xiao Sect’s annihilation.

“As long as little brother Yun is willing to let go of my unfilial son, even if you wish for my Xiao Sect to climb up a blade mountain, or swim in a cauldron of oil, our Xiao Sect will never hesitate either!” Xiao Juetian anxiously said.

“Heh, Sect Master Xiao is being too serious. How could I, a mere junior, have the mighty Xiao Sect climb up a blade mountain or swim in a cauldron of oil for me? This son of yours, I can decide not to kill him, but…” Yun Che half-narrowed his eyes. “That will depend on how much your Xiao Sect is willing to buy his life for!”


Xiao Juetian was slightly stunned. Never would he have expected that, what Yun Che wanted, as stated in his words, was actually money. However, immediately, he reacted over… Evidently, Yun Che was currently already on his way to Divine Phoenix Empire, and the Divine Phoenix Empire has the main branch of Black Moon Merchant Guild, and even more so, it has countless of unique treasures which Blue Wind Empire was unable to hope to attain. To obtain these items, the most important factor was to have sufficient gold!

If this hidden crisis, which could annihilate their entire Sect, could be eliminated just by purely using money, Xiao Juetian was naturally overjoyed. However, he was unable to ascertain if the amount Yun Che wanted was an astronomical figure that their Xiao Sect was basically unable to afford. He held his breath, and asked with incomparable caution. “I wonder… How much money must our Xiao Sect pay, in order to buy my unfilial son’s life?”

Yun Che looked at Xiao Juetian, and slowly stretched out a single finger.

Xiao Juetian’s heart was instantly lifted. With incomparable caution, he asked. “Ten… Ten thousand Purple Profound Coins?”

Ten thousand Purple Profound Coins… was a hundred million Yellow Profound Coins, an astronomical figure that a family of commoners with a poor lifestyle in Blue Wind would never dare to hope for.

Yun Che smiled coldly. “Your son’s life, is merely worth ten thousand Purple Profound Coins? It’s ten million!! Ten million… Purple Profound Coins!”

“Wh… What!!” As a lord-class figure in Blue Wind, when Xiao Juetian, whose mental endurance ability could not be compared by a regular person’s, heard this figure, he still lost control of his voice on the spot out of shock. The Xiao Sect disciples behind had even been shocked completely senseless by this figure.

Ten million… and it was even Purple Profound Coins! That was one billion Cyan Profound Coins, a hundred billion Yellow Profound Coins!!

“What? This reaction of yours… Are you thinking that your son’s life isn’t worth this amount of money?” Yun Che lightly said.

Xiao Juetian said with a pained voice. “For little brother Yun to give my unfilial son a chance to live, this humble Xiao is eternally grateful. It’s just that ten million Purple Profound Coins, this figure… my Xiao Sect’s business is small, it’s really…”

“You’d best not tell me that your Xiao Sect isn’t able to afford it.” Yun Che’s dark and measuring voice interrupted Xiao Juetian’s words. “If you’re telling me that a sect which had accumulated a thousand years of wealth isn’t even able to take out ten million Purple Profound Coins, then that’s insulting my intelligence! Your son’s life, naturally isn’t worth this amount of money, then… is your Xiao Sect worth ten million, hmm!?”

Xiao Juetian’s heart suddenly clenched, and his breathing had even stopped for a moment. Cold sweat instantly filled his entire forehead.

Xiao Sect was indeed capable of taking out ten million Purple Profound Coins… With Xiao Sect’s abilities, power, and influence, its yearly income was always an astronomical figure. However, at the same time, Xiao Sect’s expenditure was immense as well. In order to maintain the flourishing of Xiao Sect’s power, every year, an immense amount had to be spent to raise the people of Xiao Sect. In regards to those talented geniuses, or the young generation with unique statuses, there was an even bigger need of an extremely large investment. While after deducting the expenditure from the income, the surplus Xiao Sect had every year, was merely a few ten thousands of Purple Profound Coins. The moment Yun Che opened his price, he actually asked for ten million Purple Profound Coins… That was wealth that Xiao Sect had to use a few dozen years to save up for!

However, currently, facing this astronomical figure, Xiao Juetian definitely did not dare to utter a single no, nor did he even dare to show a hint of hesitation. Because Yun Che had clearly used the entire Xiao Sect as his threat. He glanced at Xiao Kuangyun below him. His chest was swelling up to the point of bursting, and blue veins were popping out on his entire body, as though he really wished to personally rip Xiao Kuangyun into shreds. He hated himself for overly pampering this youngest son of his, for allowing him to actually turn into good-for-nothing who treated lust as his life… In the end, he brought about such a monstrous crisis.

As the father of Xiao Kuangyun, he no longer had the face to continue being the Sect Master either.

“Haah…” Xiao Juetian heaved a long sigh, and said. “If little brother Yun will be willing to become friends with my Xiao Sect with this ten million, then my Xiao Sect…”

“Nevermind the thing about becoming friends. I, Yun Che, am just a small figure who came from the small city of Floating Cloud, how would I dare to become friends with the great Xiao Sect? But, regarding this grudge, I can forget about it. As long as you don’t let me see this Xiao Kuangyun person ever again, I can treat everything as it has never happened. Including that Xiao Wuyi… whom I have accidentally killed!”

When Yun Che’s final words came out, the expressions of all the people of Xiao Sect gravely changed. Xiao Juetian’s spirit, had even more so, turned cold. He no longer dared to say any further words, turned around, and transmitted his voice to the elder behind him. “Immediately… No matter what methods you use, in fifteen minutes, put together ten million Purple Profound Coins and send them here… Go, immediately.”

The elder immediately nodded, he did not dare to say anything more, and quickly left… Not even eight minutes had passed, yet he had already hurried back, and in his hands, he was holding onto a Purple Gold Card which was shimmering with purple light. With a wealth of hundred billion in his hands, even the hands of this elder, who had experienced a century of weathering, were trembling constantly, as though he was carrying a fifteen million kilogram mountain.

Yun Che reached out his hand, and instantly pulled that Purple Gold Card into his hands. Then, used his consciousness to sweep through the amount inside…

There were exactly ten million Purple Profound Coins inside… not a single bit was missing!

To the Four Major Sects of Blue Wind Empire, this was an absolute astronomical figure, let alone a single person! If not because he still had to face a large group of people from Xiao Sect, Yun Che wouldn’t have been able to resist raising his head and laughing out maniacally. With this amount of money, even in the Divine Phoenix Empire, it was still sufficient for him to squander all he want.

A trash’s life, could actually reap him such benefits, it really was a good deal. Actually, in the beginning, he had never thought of annihilating Xiao Sect. Although Xiao Sect similarly had overstepped his boundaries, the two were different. Over at Xiao Sect’s side, the one who harmed him, the one who harmed his grandfather and little aunt, was Xiao Kuangyun alone. It was unlikely for him to be furious at the entire Xiao Sect just because of him. However, Burning Heaven Clan was different! Abducting his family, and not hesitating all costs to send him to death, were decisions made by the upper echelons of the entire clan! They even did not hesitate to force him to his tolerable limit time and time again. If he did not annihilate the entire sect, there was an extremely likely possibility that they would bite him back again the future. However, for the Xiao Sect, no matter the case, their attitude was still fine. And, their guts had already been broken by fear, they definitely would not dare to go against him.

Yun Che kept the Purple Gold Card, and then, he suddenly pushed out his palm. With a dull bang, Xiao Kuangyun was sent flying in the sky. He spat out fresh blood in midair, and when he landed, he was already unconscious.

“Yun’er!” Although Xiao Juetian was extremely furious at Xiao Kuangyun, he was, after all, still his own son. He hurriedly charged over, saw that Xiao Kuangyun’s body was already covered entirely in blood, and an unknown number of his bones had been broken.

While Yun Che had already rode on the Snow Phoenix and rose into the skies. In the air, his arrogant voice rang out. “Don’t worry, he won’t die. He simply has to spend his days on the bed in the next few months. Also, from this point onwards, he shouldn’t think of ever procreating! A dog trash like him, is unworthy of having descendants! Your Xiao Sect best not allow him to step out of the doors of Xiao Sect forever. If I were to see his face again, then you people can simply take out more money to redeem his life!!”

The Snow Phoenix’s speed was extremely quick. Yun Che’s voice quickly faded away in their ears. Xiao Juetian swayed forward, and fiercely spat out a mouthful of blood.

“Sect Master!” The surrounding Elders hurriedly circled around him.

“Huu… I’m fine.” Xiao Juetian rubbed away the traces of blood at the corner of his lips. Waving his hands, he closed his eyes, and said powerlessly. “This is fine as well. At least, the safety of Xiao Sect is guaranteed. I can finally sleep peacefully… Have Yun’er carried over to Elder Wuji’s place.”

      1. hahah true all that guy wanted to do was to rape his aunt and his wife and kill him right? he should just laugh it off 😀 right??????????? no. what yun che did was badass and righteous. go read some japanese harem if you want mcs who don’t have balls.

      2. Mate, if someone attempted to rape my wife or a family member, I would make sure they’d be confined to a bed for the rest of their life in extreme pain. What Yun Che did to that little fisker was plenty kind.

      3. I know right how outrageous. How dare Yun Che treat Xiao Kuangyun like that. I mean all he did was try to kidnap and rape his little wife and Aunt the subsquent imprisonment of his grandfather and little Aunt also let’s not forget the clan expulsion and atfempt on his life. He should act more like Goku when Frieza killed his best friend who couldn’t be revived tried to kill him and threaten to blow up the earth. Wait better yet She be like Naruto when talking about Obito the murderer of his parents.

  1. Money Money Money.. I wonder if scumbag-che will make more problems with sons of another great sects just for the sake of more money in the future? XD.

    1. Well he is not really a scumbag, after all, he did nothing wrong? he could have destroyed the entire sect and plundered them once everyone is dead, and it would have been okay since that’s what they deserve.

      – their young-master tried to stole his wife, made him kicked out of his own family, and put the 2 person he loved the most in jail (and indirecly gave them to the burning clan since it’s because they were in prison that it was possible for the burning clan to take them away)

      – One of their branch tried to kill Yun-che (well he already take his revenge on these ones so i guess it’s okay on that point)

      – When the burning clan was in danger, they sent someone to kill yun-che even if he didn’t attacked them yet.

      On top of that, the money he took from them is money that he really need, because if he want to search for chu-yuechan and his child, he will need the help of the main branch of Black Moon Merchant Guild, and i doubt they will help him of pure charity. So he really need money.

      1. Actually the Xiao Sect didn’t send the elder, he went there of his own accord to help his friend, which was also called over by one of the chiefs from the Burning Sect.

        1. It seemed to me like the #2 who went to kill Yun Che was sent by #1, who is supposedly really arrogant and tyrannical. I’m surprised that fellow didn’t come out after #2 was killed and even now.

      2. “it’s because they were in prison that it was possible for the burning clan to take them away”
        Lol wut?! As if they were not powerful enough to destroy the entire town with a single attack.

  2. Nooo… The money part was good to spare the sect…

    But the little shit shoulda suffered worse. And Xiao sect shoulda been warned to change their ways.

    Thanks for the chapter XD

    1. He already has. Humiliation, broken bones, and even turn into a women. The only thing else Che could have done is take body parts but compare to other his crime was only he stupidly follow what that other guy said in the beginning and mess with che

      1. The dude pissed his pants in public. And everyone KNOWS the reason why the most powerful man in the Blue Wind Empire is named “Yun Che” instead of being “Xaio Che” and a part of the clan is entirely his fault. And… that same stupid move means the most powerful woman in Blue Wind is not an in-law of the clan either. Talk about watching someone else win a million bucks with a lottery ticket you threw out! And I’m pretty sure Yun Che castrated him in that last attack. So some very important body parts are missing.

        That said – a mere dozen years of the clan’s profit is quite reasonable by this world’s rules.

    2. Uh … The little shit did somehow suffer, many bones broken, including his reproduction ability, and many months in bed. I’d say that’s pretty okay considering he didn’t want to kill him.

    3. change their ways? those type of people are willing to do any dirty deed when cornered its like their despicableness is engraved into their souls.

      although yun che is definitely a bit merciless… that little shit definitely deserved it. i mean who knows how many girl’s lives he has already ruined using the power of his background.
      although the author doesnt seem to think it is important to mention that and i also think it is a waste of space mentioning those a person like that would definitely have abused his powers and ruined who knows how many lives. he really did get off light and more importantly the xiao sect suffered more than he did.

      1. Yun Che is not a saint but he always judging people like he was one, giving his personality you can be the greatest guy on earth if he find himself in a situation where it is you or him he’ll kill you right away in other to save his skin, coz he doesn’t weight people lives onto whether they are good or bad, innocent or evil, the only thing that matter to him is if whether you are close to him or not. But anyway my opinion is totally irrevelant coz I already drop this series, I just want to vent some steam. Bye, this is not my kind of story or MC I can’t bring myself to enjoy it at all, everyone of these chapters I feel like a bystander watching other people being bullied. ?????. Bye again and enjoy if this is your type of story.

          1. You are just so salty watching other people stop reading something that you like,,

            u dont even know him that much yet u said what kind of taste he should fancy

  3. Does anybody remember if he got anything from the burning heaven clan? I think I recall everything being destroyed and he left right after beating everyone.

  4. Thanks for the chapter.

    If you can show mercy today, and let go of my unfilial son, my Xiao Sect will definitely deeply grateful, and will rever little brother Yun as our lord.

  5. Thanks for the update!
    I’d really like to donate from time to time but unable to do so because I dont have paypal acct nor a credit card. In my country, we dont really need cards that much. Is there any other way (western union, perhaps) that I can donate?

  6. You know, for all the various opinions on Yun Che taking money of all things, I’m just happy this isn’t taking the standard Xianxia route where he just kill everyone, and some high-tier expert gets miffed at that, rinse repeat. I don’t approve of all of Yun Che’s actions, but I can appreicate Mars Gravity’s unique style.

  7. So inconsistent darnit!
    I’m all for him demanding they hand over cash for his life.
    What’s bugging me is he burned down a sect roughly the same size and DIDN’T LOOT IT!!!
    He should have looted the burning clan and passed all their precious training books back to the capital. He’d also have a huge supply of plants then too. Look at how many plants he got from a branch alone.

    1. I agree, but I wonder if there was anything left to loot after his destruction of their clan… but really, it’s way too unrealistic. But we all know the reason, it was because of that fen guy that got crazy. What if he had stayed to loot the place? it was already unrealistic and impossible that the emperor profound elder would be alive after having his organs burned to crisp for two entire hours, what if he stayed and looted the place for another 5-10 hours? what if he took the spatial ring from that elder(which he should have done)? then the fen juechen guy wouldn’t have been able to get the black key, and the author wouldn’t have been able to continue his plot. It’s extremely weird that he didn’t even take the elders spatial ring, considering the items it would contain and the time it would take.

      Not to mention that a certain sword saint arrived right after that… Well, no matter, sometimes authors turn the characters into retards for the sake of plot, haha 😀

  8. Damn, he fleeced them bare. Good guy che is so nice, to not take their lives in exchange for a paltry sum of 10 million purple profound coins and just castrating that kuangyun guy instead of killing him 😀 Maybe he will now turn into a good-guy character that cultivates obediently… heh.
