Chapter 495 – Number One Under Heaven

Just as Jasmine finished speaking, a fierce gust swept over from the north, and Yun Che only felt a green figure flash past. A huge man’s figure appeared into his vision from out of nowhere.

The man was dressed in green and was extraordinarily handsome. His eyes were masculine, his ears thirty percent larger than the elf girl, and he gave off an overbearing aura. Even his pair of transparent wings vibrated intensely with profound strength. Upon seeing the elf girl, he descended in a flash and landed beside her: “Old seven, you’re injured?”

“Big brother, you’re finally here!” Once she saw the tall man appear, the elf girl was finally relieved: “My injuries aren’t serious, but Brother Yun suffered serious injuries…”

“Hmph!” Seeing that his sister was alright, the muscular man let out a sigh of relief. Then he grunted coldly, turned around, and glared coldly at Yun Xiao, anger rising within him: “Yun brat! I knew it must be you! Luckily old seven is alright this time, otherwise… I will personally cripple you!”

“I…” Yun Xiao opened his mouth, but did not rebute. Instead, he looked down in shame.

“Big brother! Don’t talk to him like that!” The elf girl frantically grabbed his hand: “It’s not Brother Yun’s fault, and… and he was only so severely injured in order to save me. It’s enough that you don’t thank Brother Yun, but you’re actually acting so fierce toward him.”

“Thank? Hmph!” The muscular man looked down: “Wasn’t it him who asked you out this time?”

“I… No, it wasn’t. It was me who secretly asked Brother Yun out. If you want to blame someone, then blame me.” The elf girl answered as she puffed her cheeks. It was obvious she was not good at lying and her wavering eyes and pique attitude had already betrayed her.

“It’s not seventh sister’s fault, it’s all my fault.” Yun Xiao’s head hung downwards with a face of guilt and unease.

“Since you know it’s your fault, you better stay further away from old seven from now on!” The muscular man said coldly said: “If there’s a next time, I will personally cripple your hands and legs! I do what I say! Old seven is not someone you are worthy of… Hmph! Who knows which bastard child you are. Do you really think you’re the Young Master of the Yun family?!”

“Big brother!” The muscular man’s words caused the elf girl’s face to change drastically as she looked worryingly at Yun Xiao, and said angrily: “How can you say such words to Brother Yun… If you continue, I’ll ignore you from now on!”

“Old seven, I… forget it, hmph!” The muscular man was spurred by anger, and now felt he was a little overboard as well. He turned around and stopped talking.

Yun Xiao’s face blackened as he bit his lips. Then, he smiled bleakly, shook his head, and said: “Seventh sister, don’t blame big brother, what he said is true… but,” Yun Xiao looked up and said with resolve: “But no matter what, even if you cripple my legs, I will never give up on seventh sister! It is undoubtedly my fault that seventh sister was nearly assassinated this time. I will definitely train hard, and next time, I won’t allow anyone to bully seventh sister anymore. Then, you and uncle will be at ease when you pass seventh sister on to me.”

“Brother Yun…” The elf girl looked on tenderly as her eyes filled with tears.

The muscular man looked over with disdain, but when he saw the elf girl, he quickly changed to a caring and serious look: “About the matters concerning you two, we will discuss them back in the city… Old seven, what happened here? You sound transmitted over that you were attacked by three Overlords? Where are they now?”

The elf girl turned and looked at Yun Che: “Me and Brother Yun nearly died in their hands. It was this Big Brother Yun who saved us. If not for Big Brother Yun, if you came now, you would probably only see our corpses. You should thank him.”

“You?” The muscular man turned and looked at Yun Che with suspicion. He saw Yun Che when he arrived, but chose to ignore him as he was only in the Sky Profound Realm and was a stranger.

Yun Che smiled slightly: “I am Yun Che.”

The elf girl continued: “Big Brother Yun and Brother Yun are the same age, but he’s amazing. He killed a black-clothed man in one move, scaring the two others away… He really only used one move! The three black-clothed men were all Overlords. Me and Brother Yun cooperated but couldn’t even defeat one.”

The muscular man’s eyes swept across Yun Che and he gradually frowned. From what he sensed, Yun Che’s profound strength was only at the tenth level of the Sky Profound Realm… At this level, he could only be considered a weakling within Demon Imperial City. How could he kill Overlords… and furthermore, defeat them instantly!

Under his forceful gaze, he realized that Yun Che, who was in front of him, was unperturbed and completely unaffected by the pressure of his aura. He was slightly shocked in his heart. Then, he step forward without uttering a single word, and push out a palm at Yun Che.

The casual palm caused a huge and dangerous looking spiral to appear in the space between him and Yun Che. Following which, the huge spiral suddenly dispersed into ninety-nine separate small spatial whirlpools, then converged again, and smashed towards Yun Che.

Wind attribute profound energy?

This was a blow from a high level Overlord, perhaps the most frightening attack Yun Che had ever received since birth. However, he did not panic, nor did he retreat or even move. He stretched his hand out and a ball of Phoenix flames burned in his hand, going head-on against the savage, oncoming profound energy cyclone.

Boom!!

The savage wind profound energy and the fire profound energy collided against each other without any trickery. Even though it was only a simple test between the two, space was still violently torn apart in that instant; the savage storm tore apart the flames, and the torn apart flames burned the savage storm. The surrounding ten of meters of air were violently disrupted by the collision of wind and fire.

Yun Che collided against the muscular man in the midst of the collision between the storm and the flames and was forced back by three steps. They looked at each other, their gaze now completely different from before, as their hearts echoed the same words:

So strong!

Yun Che possessed strong arm strength gifted by the Dragon God’s bloodline and natural strength. Hence, when they collided, he should’ve had the advantage. Despite that, he did not gain an advantage from that straightforward exchange… This was also not knowing how much strength his opponent had used.

The muscular man’s shock was even greater than Yun Che’s. Because the Yun Che in front of him was obviously only in the Sky Profound Realm, and from what he had heard from old seven, he was probably only in his early twenties… What exactly was this person’s background? Why had he never seen him before?

“Big Brother, what are you doing!” The elf girl chided: “Big Brother Yun is our benefactor. Not only did you not thank him, you attacked him! You’ve gone too far.”

“Hahahaha!” The muscular man laughed, cupped his fists at Yun Che and said sincerely: “Brother, please do not misunderstand. Even though I am a member of the elven race, I love battles. When I see a strong opponent, I cannot help myself. I am Number One Under Heaven, I thank Brother Yun for saving old seven’s life. Your kindness, my clan will definitely repay you.”

“…” Yun Che opened his mouth, but did not speak. He had seen arrogant people before, but he had never seen someone so arrogant that he proclaimed himself to be the number one under heaven! Even though he was strong, he couldn’t be the number one under heaven, right? Even if you are the number one under heaven… Would you die if you were a little more humble?!

Seeing Yun Che’s expression, the muscular man knew what he was thinking and laughed bitterly: “Brother Yun, do not misunderstand, I’m not such a conceited and arrogant person but my surname is Under Heaven and my name is Number One. My father named me this way and I too am helpless.”

Surname Under Heaven… Name Number One…

How great is he at naming?!

Even though Yun Che tried his best to control himself, his brows still twitched intensely twice as he eyed the elf girl. He said with a nod: “So that’s why. Then, your sister’s name is…”

“Oh, my sister is the seventh child in the family, so she’s named Number Seven Under Heaven…”

“Don’t say it!! Ugh…” The elf girl tried to stop her brother but it was already too late. She could only hold her face in embarrassment: “It’s all dad’s fault, giving me such a stupid name… Just call me seventh sister! Seventh sister!”

“…” Yun Che used an immense amount of determination to stop himself from laughing out loud. It was no wonder seventh sister refused to mention her name just now. The eldest was Number One Under Heaven and the seventh eldest was Number Seven Under Heaven… One could guess with their toes what the second eldest to the sixth eldest were respectively called: Number Two Under Heaven, Number Three Under Heaven… Number Six Under Heaven…

Who knows whether there were any Number Eight Under Heaven, Number Nine Under Heaven…

That also meant that the titles of the top few people in this world belonged to their family!

“Brother Yun looks very foreign, could this be your first time coming here?” When Number One Under Heaven said his name, Yun Che’s reaction caused him to believe that Yun Che was definitely not from Demon Imperial City. Furthermore, at his age, having such a profound strength level was frightening. If he belonged to Demon Imperial City or its surrounding places, he would not be so unfamiliar.

“That’s right.” Yun Che nodded: “In my entire life, I’ve never actually entered Demon Imperial City before.”

“No wonder.” The Number One Under Heaven nodded before honestly continuing: “Old seven is my Under Heaven family’s most important treasure. Since you’ve saved her life, you are a great benefactor of my Under Heaven Clan. If you don’t mind, how about coming to our Under Heaven Clan to stay for a while? I also happen to have some free time now and can bring Brother Yun around the city.”

Yun Xiao and Number Seven Under Heaven revealed faces of shock… They knew fully well of Number One Under Heaven’s status and position, and since he was young, he had never took the initiative to get to know someone… However, as they thought of Yun Che’s age and abilities, they could understand why. With such skills at his age, even within the entire Demon Imperial City, he could be considered an elite. Even though the Under Heaven Clan’s power within the Demon Imperial City was considered massive, making such a friend would only bring benefits.

Yun Che smiled and replied: “I appreciate Brother Under Heaven’s intentions, but Brother Yun Xiao and I have the same surname. It must be fate, so I’ve already agreed to go to the Yun family for a while. However, when I’m more familiar with Demon Imperial City and know where Brother Under Heaven lives, I will definitely go pay a visit.”

Number One Under Heaven glanced at Yun Xiao, before gradually nodding: “Since that’s the case, I shall not ask anymore. That Yun brat knows where my Under Heaven family lives. If you encounter any problems that are difficult to handle, you can come find me at any time. Although my Under Heaven family is not huge, within Demon Imperial City, and perhaps even the entire Illusory Demon Realm, we still have some reputation.”

Yun Che raised his hand: “Since that’s the case, I shall thank Brother Under…”

Yun Che words were suddenly cut off as he stared forwards, stunned for a moment…

Illusory… Demon… Realm…

Illusory Demon Realm?!

  1. It seems like the normal continent will suffer before Yun Che returns. Do you think a time distortion will occur? (It definitely not happened yet, as Yun Xiao is the same age is Yun Che).
    I really hope Yun Che’s lovers don’t suffer by the time he arrives. They are coveted by others after all. (revenge, special body, battle between clans in the third continent)
    I do assume that princess Snow will try to protect Yun Che’s family though.

    1. “I do assume that princess Snow will try to protect Yun Che’s family though.”

      I think it was mentioned that the princess was going to undergo closed-door cultivation, if not I don’t even think that the Phoniex Clan would be able to attack Blue Wind, as she would most likely had stopped it before it even happend if she knew.

    2. Well he did tell princess Snow that he’ll be back in 3 years so I think he get back in about a year or so maybe less, cause I do understand that he might find his family and he also has to pass some shit the the Emperor but he also has his own family back there (cant wait for the moment he sees his son) and also he cant let those bastards take his 1st wifu (forgot her name ) and her op power (u know, gotta get the triple hehe), jeez when he comes back he will be soooo broken destroying a clan will seem like a child’s play, but we also can’t forget that he will definitely get some ladies at the Demon Realm too (probably that elf girl and somebody else (¬‿¬)

      1. you know it didn’t click when I read that name. But now it makes a lot of since since we already know they were only a couple of months apart. And the parents were both really, really close friends. Yun Che’s parents must of known or they wouldn’t of named him Xiao.

  2. If I was Yun Che I would not be that glad to meet his parrent, cause they clearly have abandoned him, given how large and powerfull the Yun family they cloud have send somme expert secretly to get back thers son but nop they did not, must have taught since he was crippled as a baby he was not worthed…

    1. We already know how hard it is for them to travel all the way between the continents and we know that the 4 sacred lands r dangerous to them. They captured his grandfather 100 years ago and he was way OP. Also from what we learnt from yun Che’s grandfather said his parents were serverly injured. Grandfather gone+parents so injured may take years to recover or never… Don’t you think their standing in the clan would fall? How would they be able to convince someone even more OP then the grandfather to go? I’m thinking they probably thought something along the lines as the xiao Che’s father was thinking after they found out

        1. Except the elf just called him Yun Xiao a bastard child. Plus all members of the Yun clan unlock their profound handle at heaven realm and Yun Xiao would not have it. Plus they named their real child Yun Che but than named their adopted child Yun Xiao after the Xiao clan.

        2. Remember, the swap was done to save Yun Che’s life, they assumed that the assassins would have gone after the parents but they detoured to hit the Xiao family instead.

          1. To be honest, I have an extremely vague impression over what happened to his parents.
            At first we were told they were found dead, with the baby (yun che) barely clinging to life, crippled — And then, after being sealed in the sword-sect, we received a hint that they might be alive (although, why would they? eh?)
            And now you guys make it seem like his parents may be alive. Or, for the very least, someone from the illusionary-realm was on the Sky Continent, in order to take Yun Xiao back.

            I think that tid bit was explained when Yun Che was imprisoned, but I can’t recall a thing for the life of me.

          2. Apparently the next chapter actually clarifies that point, derp, but it didn’t jog my memory as to why the Xiao clan / his ‘grandpa’ thought Yun Che’s real parents died.

    2. His family didnt abandon him he was swapped with the xiao clan baby. Even if the parents wanted the baby back they couldnt get it because the people from the demon illusion realm are hated by the 4 sacred grounds making it hard for the real parents from finding and getting yun che.

    1. It’s the continent where Yun Che’s parents are from. Do you remember Yun Che’s biological grandfather? Yeah, that’s when it was mentioned.

  3. Whaaat? We’re at this point already?? I was expecting Yun Che to become a lot stronger to THEN (somehow) travel to IDR. This was waaaay to easy. I hope we’re not close to 40% of the novel already?! 🙁

    1. If he didn’t write it in english, we wouldn’t get the joke. This whole chapter is about this joke, so he had to write it in english at least this chapter. It may change in later chapters.

  4. Thanks for the chapter SummerRain, alyschu, phillip b, anon#K, Christopher M, James T, Douglas B, Brett F, and Mars Gravity!

    Now for the touching reunion!!

  5. Hahaha, that’s so funny!! I can’t stop laughing uhh,,my rib hurt, hahaha. You really got me there, when I read the title I’ve never ever linked that to the person name. Hahahaha. This is a charming family i’m sure, the name tells it all, hahaha.
    Yun Che, why do you so surprised? You act so cute lately, hahaha. Eventhough the clues are all there, Yun Che himself seems to think it’s unbelievable coincidence too. He even doesn’t consider the possibilty at all.
    Thank you for the chapter!

    1. Well he was traveling in a spatial storm for 18 months only to find out that the profound arc took a joy ride through the universe and ultimately put him back in the same world albeit in a different continent.

  6. i don’t actually find it funny, just a bit of a coincidence as they had the surname under heaven.

    i’ve already met a few people with names yi, er, san, etc.
    so its actually not unusual for numbers to end up as names.

  7. Ah, as I expected. This Xiao Yun is likely the baby he swapped with that his parents brought away back to the Demon continent. What a coincidence that he meets and saves the life of such a person right off the bat :3

  8. So the elfs pronounce their names in the reverse? Surname aka Family name he’s usually pronounced first and their personal name second like Yun Che, surname Yun, personal name Che, so wouldn’t he have announced himself as Under Heaven Number One? How about you changing the surname to World. Thus they are now World #1 , World #7. That way you don’t have to write as much.

  9. I was under the impression that Illusory Demon Realm was basically another continent on the same planet as the Profound Sky Continent, just separated by a really wide ocean? After all, it was previously said that any sufficiently powerful expert could travel between them. So why did the profound Ark have to spend over a year in dimensional travel to get there? Seems really odd.

    1. Maybe that’s just how big the planet they live on. I mean we only know that the planet is 97% water and 3% landmass. We only assume their planet would be the same size as ours but it could be bigger than ours. And as for as taking over a year it could have to do with the ark being on it’s last breath of life and Jasmine playing around with the time distortion. Time distortions are very unpredictable.

      1. Jasmine herself said that 18 months on that arc is enough time for it to fly to a world on the opposite side of the universe. Its just my assumption but it might be just bad programming of the arc. Ie. They made an origin point and than it flies to all other stops from that point. So even though it would have taken a minute tops for it to fly to the illusionary demon realm, it ripped through space went to the point and then flew back to the next area.

        Another possibility is that when Jasmine pushed the arc with her power half way through, she redirected it. >.<
        Well even if she didn't redirect it, I'm 90% sure Jasmine knew where the arc ended up but still scum bagged him by acting like she didn't know.

        1. I want to believe that she knew, and given her personality she intentionally withheld the information so Yun Che wouldn’t not train and just try and find a way home. Which he really needs to do.

  10. Thanks for the chapter…. I’m starting to like this more and more now that he isn’t as far as I thought he was. Wonder how this is going to play out with him looking for his family trying to get back to the other continent. I need more than a chapter a day now. My curiosity has peaked to back when I started reading this and didn’t want to put this down for anything.

  11. That’s one unlucky family. You can imagine there’s gonna be loads of tough dudes who can’t live in peace knowing there’s a family like that.

    And here I thought the Profound Ark was way out in another galaxy. And that Xiao guy is just like his father and grandfather, almost too much of a nice guy. Can’t wait for the Yun family intrigue.

  12. Hi, thanks for the translations !

    I have a question !
    The translation “old seventh” doesn’t feel quite right to me.
    Since she’s seventh, she’s younger than Number One Under Heaven so him calling her that way is weird.
    Isn’t “venerable” seventh a better choice ? Since she seems to have quite some status in the clan.

      1. unless she’s the oldest sister. She might be the 7th child but she could very well be the 1st sister which is why they are this respectful.

    1. It’s also a bit of a literal translation. “Lao” Yi, “Lao” Er, “Lao” Shan (Old one, Old two, Old three) is a common way for the Chinese to call brothers (it is a bit manly for a girl though, so she might be a tomboy). Usually, it translates as “First Brother, Second Brother etc” but if you kept it phonic, it’s Old One, Old Two, Old Three.

  13. i wonder if big bro hasnt gotten his hand in this assassination attempt mebbe shes gonna b the heir to the throne or somefing?
    or perhaps shes the one hes gonna give tht stuff his grand pa gave him b4 he tore his own heart out?

  14. Thanks for the chapter.

    Following which, the huge spiral suddenly dispersed into ninety nine separate small spatial whirlpools, then converged again, and smashed towards Yun Che.
    -ninety-nine

    The surrounding ten of meters of air were violently disrupted by the collision of wind and fire.
    -ten meters / tens of meters

  15. The hints was so heavy even from a few chapters ago, it’s obvious this guy is the one who was swapped with yun che, his name is even yun XIAO to commemorate that and then he’s a bastard child and whatever else.
