Chapter 568 – Victory Round

Crack… crack…

In the enormous Demon Imperial Hall, there were more than ten thousand strong practitioners from all over the world, but besides the sound of the shattered jade falling from the wall, there weren’t any other traces of sound at all… not even the sound of breathing. Everyone in the Demon Imperial Hall had already stood up with their eyes widened, mouths opened, and it was uncertain just how many jaws had almost dropped onto the ground.

Even the Little Demon Empress had already stood up from her throne, and was staring blatantly at the Hui Ran who was smashed into the wall.

Closest to the arena, standing on its edge, the eyes of Duke Huai, who had already built up his power in preparation to stop Yun Qinghong from rescuing Yun Che, bulged out, and the corners of his mouth, eyebrows, and chin, were all twitching as if they were cramping… For someone who was able to make the Little Demon Empress hesitate to mobilize against, able to make more than sixty percent of the Guardian Families and Duke Palaces abandon the Demon Emperor’s bloodline and turn to him, his manipulative manner and temperament were as imagined. But at this moment, his mind became completely chaotic and his face became crooked watching this scene.

The strength of this round of battle displayed an extreme disparity… the gap was even wider than in any of the other rounds. Hui Ran’s strength was already far stronger than Yun Che’s strength, and on top of that, Yun Che had fought five battles in a row, and his profound energy was greatly exhausted. The focus of the audience wasn’t on who would win the battle at all, but whether or not Yun Che could survive to the end…

The whole process of the two fighting hand to hand only lasted an instant…

That instant was so short that no one had been able to react yet…

And one of them was knocked away fiercely, flew directly out of the arena, and was smashed into the east wall of the Demon Imperial Hall.

According to the rules, falling outside the arena, also meant the end of this battle!

The one who was blown away instantly wasn’t Yun Che, but was the one whose strength was abnormally high, who could stomp Yun Che completely, the Hui Ran whom no one thought had any chance of losing!!

The scene that they saw, was no different from a dying little blade of grass suddenly knocking over a tall tree that had been rooted in the ground for ten thousand years… It was as mind blowing as the heavens and earth suddenly turning upside down.

“Big Brother… won…” Xiao Yun mumbled, as though he had lost his soul, then followed with an uncontrollably loud yell, “Big Brother won… Big Brother won!! Our Yun Family won!”

Xiao Yun’s loud, excited yelling brought everyone back from shock. At that instant, countless exclamations assembled into an earthshaking, loud soundwave.

“Yun Che won… It’s true… Yun Che won!!”

“Th-th-th… this is the most incredible thing that I have seen all my life!”

“Hui Ran lost… lost in only one move! Ahhhh… I cannot believe my own eyes, am I dreaming?!”

“This is impossible… Impossible! Who can tell me what happened, this is definitely impossible!!”

“Hui Ran was the last person from Duke Huai’s side. Yun Che won… that means, the end result is the Yun Family’s victory!!”

“Father… Hui Ran lost, and Yun Che won… We… actually… we won!” Su Zhizhan stuttered, his voice swayed, as if he was sleep talking.

“That’s… right.” Su Xiangnan nodded slowly, and his voice shivered heavily, “I believe no matter who it is, it would be impossible for anyone to expect this result. This Yun Che… what kind of god is he?”

The dignified Su Family Patriarch actually used the word “god” to describe Yun Che, but at this moment, it didn’t sound exaggerated or unsuitable at all to anyone in the Su Family.

“Unbelievable… unbelievable… it really is unbelievable.” Mu Feiyan said the word “unbelievable” three times in a row. This Mu Family Patriarch, who had lived for more than several hundred years, exhibited the emotion of “amazement” in his eyes, voice, and expression. He was just criticizing Yun Che earlier for being too young and rash, not knowing when to fight or yield, but he then realized that Yun Che knew exactly what he was doing. After he had reached a hundred years of age, he rarely misjudged anyone, but when it came to Yun Che, he kept underestimating over and over again…

Mu Yubai opened his mouth, and mumbled in a low voice, “This boy, where did this little monster come from…”

He had always been serious about being sworn brothers with Yun Che, but at this moment, he felt diffident in his heart. At first, he lowered himself at all costs and asked Yun Che himself to become sworn brothers. Half of it was because of his gratitude to him, and the other half was naturally because of his top medical skills which had cured Yun Qinghong and Mu Yurou… If he got a brother like this, then it wouldn’t just be him getting a few more lives, it would benefit the entire Mu Family.

The reason why he was so adamant on getting what he wanted and was a bit forceful back then, was because he was, after all, the Mu Family’s young patriarch, and would soon become a true Patriarch of the Mu Family. He thought for sure that his background and ability was absolutely worthy enough. But now, after seeing Yun Che’s incredibly shocking skills, temperament, and boldness, on top of his medical skills that could amaze everyone under heaven… this Yun Che, who had all of these qualities, was only twenty-two years old!

Him at the same age would be beaten by Yun Che instantly by who knows how many city blocks.

Since he had accomplished this kind of achievement at the mere age of twenty-two, it made his future accomplishments even more unimaginable.

If someone said he would become the number one of the Illusory Demon Realm in the future, probably none of the people here who had witnessed everything today would doubt it.

Therefore, under Yun Che’s overly bright radiance, this dignified Mu Family’s young patriarch became unconfident about lowering himself and taking the initiative to ask to become sworn brothers…

“Such a character has actually appeared in our Demon Illusory Realm.” Greatest Ambition Under Heaven said in an impressed voice, “But unfortunately, he is Yun Qinghong’s adopted son. If he were their biological son, the Yun Family wouldn’t have any worries in the future… Firstly, Father originally thought that you overexaggerated, but in truth, Yun Che was even more impressive than you had described. This boy’s achievements in the future will definitely shake the heavens. On top of that, he is the savior of our Under Heaven Clan… You all should make friends with him more later on.”

All the brothers of the Under Heaven Clan were nodding their heads. Everyone’s eyes were still filled with deep shock and astonishment.

Yun Qinghong stood tall. The Yun Family’s elders who were behind him were already so riled up that they didn’t bother to take note of their image, and started yelling with the young disciples until they almost lost their voices. He didn’t yell, and didn’t rush into the arena. He gazed at Yun Che as tears welled up in his tiger eyes. He knew clearly… Everyone knew clearly, this result, wasn’t just as simple as an unimaginable miracle. He saved the Yun Family from its fate, saved all of the Guardian Families and Duke Palaces who were loyal to the Little Demon Empress, and most importantly, he saved the momentum and dignity of the Demon Emperor’s bloodline.

He even gave Duke Huai’s people, who were originally incredibly cocky, a severe, heavy strike.

“Che’er, Father is proud of you!” Yun Qinghong said while smiling. He didn’t even look at Duke Huai… because there was no question that Duke Huai’s face must have looked extremely awful.

Duke Huai’s face awful-looking right then was not only awful, it was so crooked that it was hard to tell his facial features apart. The faces of Duke Zhong, other masters of various great Duke Palaces, and patriarchs from the east wing, all darkened to the color of a pot’s bottom. They stood there, gazing at each other, but none of them were able to say a word.

“Ahhhh!!”

Bang!!

The east wall of the hall suddenly exploded in a beast-like roar. Hui Ran jumped out with disheveled hair and a face full of blood, and rushed directly towards Yun Che with bloodshot eyes, “Bastard… this duke will kill you!!”

Even though Hui Ran looked extremely beaten down, his momentum was still incredibly shocking. After taking two sword attacks from Yun Che under the state of Dragon Soul Domain, not only did his profound energy not collapse, judging from the surface, he didn’t seem to have suffered from any serious injuries… Yun Che felt slightly cold in his heart. This Hui Ran’s strength was indeed unusual.

A profound storm with a raging aura struck. The Yun Family’s Great Elder Yun Waitian flew up, and immediately went in front of Yun Che to protect him. He roared furiously, “Hui Ran, what do you think you’re doing?!!”

At present, the entire Yun Family treated Yun Che like their precious treasure, how could they possibly let him get hurt?

No matter how strong Hui Ran was, it was impossible for him to be Yun Waitian’s match. Under the imposing aura of Yun Waitian, he was forced away immediately. Hui Ran was even angrier, as he roared furiously, “This bastard tricked me! With this duke’s ability, how is it possible for me to lose to this kind of trash… Yun Che, do you dare to fight this duke fairly?!”

Yun Family’s Second Elder Yun Duanshui also flew in front of Yun Che to protect him. He looked at Hui Ran, laughed coldly and said, “Hui Ran, a loss is a loss. No one here is blind. We all clearly saw everything. You are a dignified duke after all, and you can’t afford to lose? Hmph, aren’t you afraid of making your entire Duke Huai Palace the whole world’s laughingstock?”

“Shut up!” Hui Ran pointed his finger at Yun Che, and his whole body was shivering. This extremely arrogant person had never lost in his entire life. But today, under everyone’s eyes, he was blasted out of the arena by someone who was far weaker than himself, who had already exhausted most of his profound energy. He had never been humiliated like this ever in his whole life. “How could this duke possibly lose! Just now, it was clearly…”

“Enough!”

Duke Huai’s face was as calm as the surface of water. He scolded Hui Ran harshly, “Are you trying to humiliate our Duke Palace even more!? Back down immediately!”

“Father…” Duke Hui Ran’s face was cramping. Everyone’s gazes were like knives on his back. He held his fists tightly in reconciliation, looked at Yun Che viciously, and gnashed his teeth while he turned around to walk out of the arena. As soon as he got back to his seat, he spat out a mouthful of blood violently… Yun Che’s heavy sword wasn’t so easy to bear.

“Very well!” The Little Demon Empress walked down slowly. That face which seemed to always be cold revealed some relief in a moment of extreme rarity, “What a remarkable competition. Yun Che was only in the Sky Profound Realm, but he alone fought six battles in a row, and won consecutively against our Demon Imperial City’s six geniuses. It was eye-opening, even to this empress, very impressive!”

“According from the rules that were set before the competition, if the Yun Family loses, they will lose the title of Guardian Family. The Yun Family was originally on the edge of the cliff, but Yun Che turned the tide himself, and turned defeat into victory. Looks like even the heavens are on the Yun Family’s side!”

The Little Demon Empress’ gaze slanted, swept across the east wing, and at last landed on Duke Huai, “Duke Huai, do you have anything else to say about this result?”

Before Duke Huai even spoken yet, Yun Che already said loudly, “Before Duke Huai says anything, may I remind Duke Huai… the wager that both of our sides had agreed to. Duke Huai, please don’t forget about it! If you win, our Yun Family leaves the Guardian Families. And if we win… heh! You all can shut up about our Yun Family’s business now. And… Helian, Chiyang, Nangong, Bai, Xiao, Lin, each of these families must submit two and a half kilograms of Purple Veined Divine Crystals to our Yun Family within a month! And you, Duke Huai, must turn in ten kilograms of Purple Veined Divine Crystals to our Yun Family within a month!”

The corners of Yun Che’s mouth arched, “Regarding this, we have the Little Demon Empress and everyone here as witnesses. You, Duke Huai, and the seven families agreed that easily… Duke Huai, I believe that you, as a dignified duke, wouldn’t go back on your words with everyone watching, right?”

After Yun Che finished speaking, the faces of everyone from the seven families all became the color of pig liver. This two and a half kilograms of Purple Veined Divine Crystal was their lifeline, and even the Guardian Families that were on the peak of the Demon Illusory Realm would have to accumulate for hundreds of years to reach that amount. The reason that they followed Duke Huai’s lead and agreed to it, and let everyone witness, was because they were extremely sure that their side would absolutely not lose. This “bargaining chip” were merely there as a decoration.

And now, they lost…

If they really submitted two and a half kilograms of Purple Veined Divine Crystals, then it would be the same as destroying the hundred years of the family’s progress. As for the Yun Family who had gathered a few dozen kilograms of Purple Veined Divine Crystal, it would be hard for them to not ascend. They absolutely could not accept this… but unfortunately this was the Demon Empress’ Grand Ceremony, where all the strong practitioners from the Illusory Demon Realm gathered. Ten thousand strong Illusory Demon practitioners were the most solid witnesses in the whole world. If they went back on their words, then it would essentially mean peeling off the skin of their faces in front of all the people under heaven, ruining the family’s prestige and reputation, and being despised and humiliated by everyone.

But at this moment, Duke Huai was not panicking at all; instead he smiled lightly, “Of course this duke did not forget. This competition was brought up originally by me. No matter win or loss, this duke would naturally accept calmly. We would definitely not be a sore loser, would definitely not go back on what we had promised, and shame our Duke Huai Palace. I believe all of the Guardian Families are like this as well.”

“But, you seemed to have completely misunderstood something.” Duke Huai’s eyes narrowed in half, and said without a hurry, “This competition was about the fate of the Yun Family. The people qualified to represent each side for the battle must be under the age of thirty-five, and they must also be from the Guardian Families and Illusory Demon Duke Palaces.”

After Duke Huai spoke, the expressions of the people in the west wing changed, and the eyes of the people in the east wing all brightened up. Duke Huai said with a smile, “Yun Qinghong, if this duke remembered correctly, this Yun Che is only a son that you adopted from somewhere else? Since he is only an adopted son, then that means he does not have the Yun Family’s bloodline… Since he does not have the Yun Family’s bloodline, then how is he qualified to represent the Yun Family for the battle!”

  1. I have read nothing ahead cause I can’t read chinese. But the next chapter meme, does that mean little empress will slap the dukes face for his twisted action to go against his word? I hope so.

    1. Most likely wrong. If you’ve been reading, you’ll notice they use the expression “slapping your own face” as a way to show that your arrogant words now are being used against you. A.k.a humiliating oneself.

  2. i was thinking…. oh my god here goes the shit talk… the face smacking genius is coming back again… and then i saw the incredible well chosen teaser for the next chapter…
    Kudos alischu man… kudos to you

  3. Here are the top 5 misconceptions I see in the comments.

    1) The sky profound pearl cannot contain a living person. Jasmine isn’t exactly “living” and has no material body. Neither is Hong’er technically alive, she’s a sword spirit.

    2) The Great Way of the Buddha at the current level brings his strength to 100,000 pounds. While we do not know Hong’ers weight after a steady diet of profound weapons (or even if she’s eaten any), it exceeds 100,000 pounds by a bit now. He can only hold it by summoning profound power.

    3) While simply being a higher level at the Great Way of the Buddha increases healing, recovery, durability, and strength, he has to activate it to use most of that recovery, which involves meditating and getting that thing floating over his head. So while he could probably recover from exhaustion within 5 minutes, he doesn’t have 5 minutes to sit and meditate.

    4) The place they are fighting on his not 5 km in size. It was said he “would have” flown back 5 km, but he didn’t because he stopped himself. It was to suggest how much force he had to absorb to keep from flying out of the ring. Newton’s laws and whatnot.

    5) The fire/ice ability does NOT take 2 hours to complete. He brought the time to 2 hours, and then he kept practicing. The last time he used the fire/ice ability, it simply said a “short moment”. Without anything to say what a short moment is, we can guess it’s longer than what could be used in combat, maybe a few minutes. Plus, to the best of our knowledge, all it does is create a ball that goes through anything. Whether he can chuck the ball or do anything combat-like is currently unknown.

    And here are three other tidbits “I think” I catched that might cheer you up. Not spoilers, totally just guessing here.

    6) Yun Che never used those herbs he bought from the auction house on his dragon sword. They were placed in his spatial ring. They are supposed to “increase the sentience” of a sword. It’s just a theory, but for those of you who hate Hong’er the loli, she may “grow up” once she eats those herbs.

    7) Yun Che himself reached 1/1000 the blood of a dragon and his body has been continuously remodeled for 1.5 years. With that, his profound handle will probably be pretty impressive when he finally reveals it. Maybe even purple or gold!

    8) He promised to meet the princess in 3 years. At has been 2 and a half years. The special transporter that his parents used to go to and from the profound continent takes 20 years to recharge. Yun Che is 22 now. Assuming they used it shortly after taking the infant Xaio Yun, it’d have just been about 20 years. Methinks he’ll make that appointment. Will he be able to return to the demon land or will he have to wait another 20 years to come back? Hmmm… if only he had some kind of primordial ark. But that would take fuel! Like an entire purple divine vein crystal mine worth of crystals to repower. Where will he ever find that! 😛

    1. I’m going to comment on misconception #1. Sky Profound Pearl cannot contain living person, but can store body/corpse(like Yun Canghai) and soul/spirit(like Jasmine). So I think it should be able to store a person. At worse, all Yun Che had to do is to induce a out-of-body experience with his medical skill and fix it back afterwards. Since he doesn’t need spirit severing medicine to help the emperor and can do such thing with Sky Profound Pearl, he should be able to do that to anyone with ease by now. Adding the crystal coffin that could prevent the body from decaying, Yun Che should be able to carry someone in Sky Profound Pearl.

      Oh. He should be able to put the spirit back to the body because if he can’t, there is no point of getting a new body for Jasmine if Jasmine cannot go in.

  4. I will never understand the utmost importance china places on bloodline. So what if he’s “technically” not related? He was still taken in by the Yun family. They don’t know how long he’s been there, the family could just claim that they were raising him in secret, and when they felt he was strong enough, reveal him as a trump card. But besides that, the Yun Family PATRIARCH directly allowed him to represent the Yun family… if that doesn’t qualify someone to represent a clan, I don’t know what would. While I know that this is just going to be an easy way for the author to get Yun Che to reveal his profound handle, I still don’t understand the requirement of bloodline.

    1. What if you a president of somekind of company, will you give it to someone who closer or someone who come out from no where ?
      my answer is , i will maybe i will give it to my son , but before that i will raise him so when he stand in company he has good character to continue the company.
      what if i give it to someone good but come out of no where ? maybe he will take the company , maybe they will forget the blessing and forget the company origin.
      Its actually common to judge someone from bloodline when that bloodline still stand strong today, but if not like maybe descendant of Hitler its not that noticeable

      1. Yes, but the issue here isn’t related to inheritance; it’s related to representation. Let me ask you the same thing: if I was asked to send someone over as an ambassador to other big name companies, would I choose: my son, who is blood related to me, but may not have the exact qualifications required to do so; or an outsider that has much higher qualifications, and from what I can glean from my son vouching from him and his genuine sincerity? I would choose the outsider. Now, inheritance, yes, I would definitely choose my family over some random schmuck, but this isn’t about inheritance.

        1. He’s just being a sore loser, and he doesn’t have any right to complain since he even personally accepted his participation.

          However, if you can just adopt someone in this case and have him represent you, it would kind of be like cheating since your clan didn’t raise the adopted person, kind of like hiring a mercenary to fight for you who already has all the power and wouldn’t really represent the clans own strength, do you get the point? If the adopted person had been in the clan since childhood, there wouldn’t realistically be such a complaint, since that one had been raised by the clan and therefore belonged there(kind of like xiao yun), but yun che just arrived three months ago and already had all this power from the very beginning. Would you truly say it’s fair if someone adopted the strongest youth in the world and then had him fight to represent the clan shortly thereafter? I think that’s more of the problem than bloodline itself. I kind of think it’s still a bit like cheating even if he’s blood-related but haven’t been raised by the clan at all… But who cares? let’s watch them getting burned by his retorts and arguments.

  5. Now, I understand why the author is going down this plot line regarding questioning Yun Che’s bloodline. It is all so we could get the “shocking” profound handle reveal…

    …HOWEVER, this is incredibly lazy writing since Duke Huai actually agreed to let Yun Che participate. He is going back on his words that he gave in front of the representatives of the whole continent. If it is going to be like that, then why have this WHOLE farce in the first place since he is just going to do as he wishes because he has the “power” to?

    Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy patches of this novel (which is why I read it) but it is precisely for this reason that I get frustrated about plot holes the size of the Mariana trench that come about with increasing frequency…sigh

    1. Duke Huai’s plan has been thoroughly wrecked. Yun Che from the start wanted to create this situation where the Duke has no choice but to go back on his word. Duke Huai definitely can’t afford to pay this debt because it would empower his enemies while weakening his allies and himself. Yun Che has been guiding the Duke toward this supposed weak point so that Duke Huai will have hung himself. The only parts that weren’t in Yun Che’s plan were Duke Huai asking for this competition before he himself could and the dragon-boy going berzerk. This whole situation is only predictable because we are outside looking in and Yun Che set it up that way.

      1. Problem is Duke Huai says: “Of course this duke did not forget. This competition was brought up originally by me. No matter win or loss, this duke would naturally accept calmly. We would definitely not be a sore loser, would definitely NOT GO BACK on what WE had PROMISED, and shame our Duke Huai Palace.”

        And then turns right around and goes back on his own word with his next sentence! He was specifically asked if Yun Che could participate before the fights and he said it was ok in front of everybody present! What does it matter which of your words you go back on?

        Another thing I wonder about is that his plot to take control of the Yun family and to overthrow the Empress has already been proven with hard evidence and is known to the whole capitol and soon the whole continent. In that case why is there even a need to care about appearances anymore? The authors keeps mentioning how the rest of the continent won’t stand for an open revolt without an actual proper reason yet isn’t the cat out the bag already?

        1. Author also mention thats its mostly just in the capital thats rumored that theres going to be a revolt, the duke was going to basically browbeat and use bullshit circumstantial evidence and crowd opinion to make her step down. Basically shame her to impeachment. Not the same as announcing to the masses that we are revolting. Instead they would campaign Your leader is incompetent and weak and so is the people who support her,but don’t worry we will take over and fix things.

          Until the monkey wrench of Yun Che.

          1. Except everybody in the capital knows about the profound handle search which is irrefutable evidence. Then you have all these representatives coming to capital from whole continent finding out about the affair. And if that is not enough then the Empress can just hold a public trial right there in front of everybody at he assembly (since they have ironclad evidence) and just execute him there and then. After the ringleader is dead who else would dare do anything from his camp? They had all this time to prepare and yet there are no concrete plans to counter his rebellion. It doesn’t make sense. Especially considering that the author stressed that the people of the whole continent are extremely loyal to the Empress.

            Anyways, it is clear that the author didn’t really think this whole arc through properly so I just wanted to rant to let off some steam.

          2. You seen the distribution of power, in pure numbers including the Imperial forces, it’s literally a 50/50 split. Once you kick off an execution, it becomes open war and a 50/50 split has a very high chance of mutual destruction, especially if the other continent is still making raids into their territory.

            Sometimes, simply executing people just makes the situation worse, especially if the forces are split 50/50.

            Look at all the crap “Arab Spring” brought along with it, once things get violent, Libya, Syria and Iraq is what results. And the Sky Profound continent is ISIS.

        2. About the Yun family takeover attempt:
          I believe, from reading various Chinese novels so far, rulers tend to let their subjects fight with each other, thus tempering the strong, weeding out the weak.
          You know, the strong win, the losers are thieves, etc…
          As such, there’s nothing that can be done about it, as long as it is not proven that it is connected to a rebellion attempt.

          About the Duke going back on his word:
          Politics. It’s not that much different from our own.
          Politicians, lawyers and the like, tend to speak in vague terms, so they can never REALLY be caught slapping their own faces.
          Things like “Translation was wrong”, “Out of context”, “I was lead on by the interviewer”, “You did not understand my words correctly”, “My words were edited/manipulated”, etc…
          Furthermore, here it’s never really about face, I mean, they do things that contradict themselves all the time, all they really care is how people SAY they think about them (again, kind of like how it is in the real world).
          The duke is strong, his side of the forces (The east? Or was it west?) is strong. Everyone who is intelligent knows he plans on a rebellion and the odds are at his favor (and those less intelligent, just fear his strength).
          Who dares say he is wrong?
          Kind of like MGA’s “I am going to steal a bride, rape her, but I am a good person, RIGHT?” – Who dares say he isn’t? Those who dared, well, the rest knows not to dare say so. (Trying to be a bit vague about that case, in case someone did not read it yet).

          About Yun Che’s reveal:
          I doubt he would show his real handle.
          On one hand, he just might. He will further spread his name as someone with a high-level handle.
          On the other, why would he show his trump card’s true power? It’s unlike him.
          I do wonder why he doesn’t (or at least, it was not revealed) open the meridians for his close allies though. Not like his parents or brother (as well as his princess wife) would tell on him, right?
          I wonder, can you release a Sword Spirit’s meridians?
          On a different note – I wonder if an offspring of Yun Che and Hong’er (Well, she’s much older than him… But I do hope she becomes more mature before and if such a scenario happens) would be like a cultivator with dragon and phoenix blood that grows blades out of his body. A new Sword-Spirit (or Sword-Gods?) race.

          1. dude. why ship yun che and hong’er? im not belief this. hahaha
            but seriously, i dont think it’s plausible. haha

          2. “dude. why ship yun che and hong’er? im not belief this. hahaha
            but seriously, i dont think it’s plausible. haha”

            Ship? Yun Che has the legacy of a few gods, as well as his own as a member of the Yun Family.
            He already has 3 women that are his, and his alone.
            The snow princess might join in, and who knows, Jasmine might as well.
            This novel seems to head towards a harem setting (if not already considered there).
            Jasmine jokes about this as well.
            So, isn’t it possible?

            I would also add in the Little Empress, but they would probably say his Phoenix blood and her Golden Crow blood would not be compatible.
            I mean, if one legacy makes you a king for 10,000 years, who’s more fitting to be her king, than Yun Che?

  6. Yun che will say to duke huai; it is your fault that your contestant is weak that i dont need to use my profound handle. (Then the profound handle will appear.)

  7. Why did everyone forget about Xiao Yun and how it’ll affect him once everyone knows Yun Che’s boodline is revealed to be of the Yun family’s?? What if him and Seventh might even lose the ability to meet with each other after that??!!!
    I feel kinda sorry for him…

    1. Well, considering Yun Che’s meteoric rise to fame, I think Xiao Yun will be fine. I imagine all of the clans and sects would want to befriend Yun Che. And considering he and Xiao Yun are sworn brothers, which would likely be announced to safeguard Xiao Yun, this should bolster Xiao Yun’s status. After all, it was already widespread that Xiao Yun lacked the profound handle and was likely not a member of the Yun Clan. Honestly, I think the Under Heaven Clan would jump on this chance to bring their respective families closer and since 7th Under Heaven and Xiao Yun are already close, this would be the best opportunity. Provided Yun Che doesn’t decide to steal his brother’s fancy.

  8. From chapter 553:

    ““But, Yun Che is only Yun Qinghong’s adopted son after all, not someone from the Yun Family. Usually, he wouldn’t be qualified to represent the Yun Family,” Number Five Under Heaven opened his mouth and said.

    “If no one from either side opposes, then why are you worrying about it?” Greatest Ambition Under Heaven said as he waved his hand, “Even if they were aware of this, they definitely won’t say anything about it. They can’t wait to use this opportunity to brutally humiliate the Yun Family… Sigh, I hope this kid can actually win.”

    “No objections, of course no objections.” Duke Huai said smilingly and said, “Since Patriarch Yun trusts your adopted son so much, your adopted son must be extraordinary. Then this duke will wait quietly for the exciting showdown next, hehehehe.””

    facepalm author.

    In other news, inb4 profound handle doesn’t get revealed till the end of 270.

    1. Like an earlier comment thread said, this may be seen as sloppy/lazy writing, a contradiction by the author, but realistically thinking, I believe that Duke Huai would much rather contradict himself lose his face than to actually pay up the large sum of crystals.
      The only reason he allowed Yun Che to represent the Yun Family was because he most likely had 100% confidence there would be no way his side would lose.
      Additionally this contraction allows the Yun Family or Yun Che to give them a epic face slap by a handle reveal.

  9. Thank you for the chapter.
    For my two cents worth thought…Yun Che could always show the profound handle in the the shape of a hand with the middle finger pointed straight up to the duke….

  10. Thanks for the chapter crushanapple, Niles, alyschu, Kevin S, Patchareeporn S, Robert G, Michael F, hernan M, and Luke P! Oh oops forgot I never showed you but…*Profound Handle appears*

  11. Mu Yubai opened his mouth, and mumbled in a low voice, “This boy, where did this little monster come from…”

    No matter what, I can’t help but answer with “your sister!”

    Sorry, I know i’m bad…

    Thanks for the chapter!

  12. “That’s… right.” Su Xiangnan nodded slowly, and his voice shivered heavily, “I believe no matter who it is, it would be impossible for anyone to expect this result. This Yun Che… what kind of god is he?”

    Phoenix god, Sky wolf god, Rage god, evil god, dragon god, I think that’s about it right now? Soon he will get the golden crow bloodline as well. So… He’s pretty much the inheritor of several gods, especially the dragon god and evil god who are probably supposed to be two of the strongest gods, perhaps even the rage god can be counted since his body resilience and regeneration is largely due to that.

    Ten thousand strong Illusory Demon practitioners were the most solid witnesses in the whole world. If they went back on their words, then it would essentially mean peeling off the skin of their faces in front of all the people under heaven, ruining the family’s prestige and reputation, and being despised and humiliated by everyone.

    Err… I’m 99% sure that there was supposed to be a hundred thousand strong practitioners present from all over the illusory demon realm, why did it change? Also seems like huai is being a real sore loser, too bad he’s their actual, biological son. Even if that wasn’t the case, huai was asked before yun che joined the battle if there was any objections to him participating, and he accepted, so he doesn’t have any right to complain.
