Chapter 974 – Hanyi Amidst Fluttering Snow

The profound energy that erupted from Yun Che’s body was tyrannical and totally surpassed the boundaries of the Sovereign Profound Realm, shocking both Mu Yizhou and Mu Luoqiu. However, to them, who were in the late stage of the Divine Soul Realm, this kind of strength wasn’t worth mentioning.

“You’re seeking death!”

In front of the “death seeking” Yun Che, Mu Yizhou didn’t even bother to move. He put his right hand behind him and casually made a clawing motion with his left. A current of cold energy then instantly enveloped Yun Che.

Even though this was only a wave of a hand from Mu Yizhou, it was still cold energy at the Divine Soul Realm. Even if someone at the tenth level of the Divine Origin Realm were to make contact with it, they would still get instantly frozen.

Beneath the frost energy, the airflow of the surrounding space completely halted. However, Yun Che, who was up ahead, directly charged through the cold energy. Forget about getting sealed by the cold energy, there wasn’t even an instant of pause in his dash.


Whether it be Mu Yizhou, Mu Luoqiu or Mu Xiaolan this scene surprised them greatly. How could Mu Yizhou and Mu Luoqiu possibly bother focusing when dealing with Yun Che, a weakling who was inferior to them by several levels? As Yun Che suddenly closed in, Mu Yizhou suddenly acted after his instant of shock and directly grabbed at Yun Che. Mu Luoqiu also subconsciously pushed out with her palm, releasing a frontal blast of ice cold energy.

Yun Che, who was already fast in the first place, became even faster by several fold when he was fifteen meters away from the couple. The visions of the two siblings became a blur as Yun Che instantly split into five exact copies.

Boom boom!!

Two loud explosions rang as snow shot up to a height of three hundred meters. The astonishing current of air pushed the distant Mu Xiaolan and Feng Mo even further away. Amidst the airwave, five Yun Ches disintegrated, disappearing without a trace.

Mu Yizhou stood stunned at the same exact spot for half a breath before he fiercely turned around. Yun Che stood undamaged, not even sixty meters behind him with a faint sneer, grabbing onto the head of a certain person.

And the person he held was shockingly Liu Hang, the person behind them that they had been protecting!

Mu Luoqiu also turned around lightning quick at this time. The two stood stunned in place at the same time as their faces turned incomparably unsightly.

Mu Xiaolan and Feng Mo was also completely stupefied.

Yun Che had snatched Liu Hang from two Ice Phoenix Palace disciples of the highest level that were absolute late stage Divine Soul Realm experts, right before their very eyes… and he had done it openly at that!

“Ah… ah… ah…” Liu Hang, whose head was being grabbed onto by Yun Che, widened his eyes, simply unable to regain his senses.

“You both said that I was Ice Phoenix Palace’s joke and disgrace. If that’s the case, what are you guys, who got a person instantly stolen right before their eyes by this joke and disgrace?” The corner of Yun Che’s mouth curled as he made a scathing remark, “Unbearably stinky dog shit?”

“Yun Che, you are destroying the last vestige of mercy I have for you!” Outside of his shock, Mu Yizhou was also thoroughly enraged due to the humiliation. He took a step forward, his eyes fixed firmly on Yun Che as he fiercely stated, “So what if you took him? If you touch him one more…”



The sound of bone cracking sounded and then was followed by Liu Hang’s extremely frightful shriek. The crisp sound of his skull breaking beneath Yun Che’s fingers could be heard as several spurts of blood gushed from his head.

“Ahhh… ahhh… AHHHH!!” Being distinctly aware that one’s own skull was being crushed was a terror similar to instantly falling into hell. As though he had been scared stiff by a devil, Liu Hang desperately howled. His body jerked beneath the extreme terror, as though it was boneless.

“Little Hang!!” Mu Luoqiu paled in shock and even Mu Yizhou’s footsteps had faltered. Never in his dreams would he imagine that Yun Che would actually make a move… and it was a vicious skull crushing move. The other party was still an official disciple of Freezing Snow Hall—and he had done it in front of them.

“I touched him, what are you going to do?” Blood flowed from the cracks between Yun Che’s fingertips. Since the skull had already fractured, as long as he exerted some force, it was enough to shatter Liu Hang’s entire brain.

Yun Che was actually smiling as he did such a vicious thing. That sinister smile made their hearts turn cold.

“Yun Che… You.. You dare!!” Mu Yizhou’s voice trembled and even his body was slightly shivering. He had never encountered such ruthlessness and lack of hesitation during all the years he had been in Ice Phoenix Palace or even his entire life.

“Why wouldn’t I dare?” Yun Che still smiled, “Besides, I’ve already completely offended you and you even said that you wouldn’t let me off. Since that’s the case, I should just kill him to gain something from it.”

“Cousin… don’t… don’t… don’t come over…” Liu Hang’s soul had already flown out of his body. “He… He’ll do it… he’s a madman… don’t come over… don’t come over…”

“Yun Che… no, no. Senior Brother Yun… let me go… let me go… I won’t dare to do it anymore… I promise… I promise that my cousins won’t come after you… I promise!!! Cousins, save me… save me…”

“Big brother, what do we do? He… he…” Mu Luoqiu was also at a complete loss.

Mu Yizhou gritted his teeth but still did not advance or retreat. They could sense Yun Che’s terrifying expression and non-negotiable methods. If they made the slightest of actions without thought, he really might kill Liu Hang.

“Mu Yizhou,” Yun Che walked toward the siblings with his grip still on Liu Hang’s head. “When I disciplined this trash who bullied members of the same sect in your place, you should’ve thanked me and then I was going to call you senior brother. Wouldn’t that be just wonderful? Yet you insist acting like you’re all that. You say that I’m seeking death? Hah, Mu Yizhou, I definitely have the guts to kill Liu Hang but do you have the guts to kill me?”

“You…” Mu Yizhou almost shattered his teeth from gritting them too hard. He had been rendered speechless by a “lower realm trash” he didn’t even bother putting in his eyes.

This was because he really didn’t have the guts to kill Yun Che—even if Yun Che really did kill Liu Hang.

Although Yun Che’s profound strength was low and he was from the lower realms, the entire sect knew that he had been personally brought over from the lower realms by Mu Bingyun. This was also the first time Mu Bingyun had ever brought someone back from the lower realms. She had even personally come to Freezing Snow Hall three months ago to protect Yun Che and didn’t hesitate to denounce Mu Fengshu. It was clear that she viewed him as important.

And what kind of person was Mu Bingyun? She was the Great Realm King’s biological sister. One thousand years ago, she was a peerless expert at the middle stage of the Divine Sovereign Realm and the strongest out of all thirty six palace masters. Whether it be her prestige, status or strength, there was no equal. It could be said that in the entire Snow Song Realm she was number two, right below the Great Realm King.

Ever since the depression a thousand years ago, Mu Bingyun rarely appeared in public since she could’ve died any time due to the toxin. However, everyone in the sect now knew that she had somehow miraculously recovered. It wouldn’t be long until she recovered back to the Palace Master Bingyun of a thousand years ago, whose might towered over the entire Snow Song Realm. The disciples under her were only Mu Xiaolan and Yun Che… Toward Yun Che, who was taken under her wing, although Mu Yizhou dared to lecture him, even if he had ten times the courage, he wouldn’t dare to actually deal a murderous blow.

Yun Che’s hand tightly gripped onto Liu Hang’s skull like an iron hook. From the sneer on his face, anyone was able to tell that it resembled a demon’s evil grin.

In the eyes of all his enemies, Yun Che had always been a ruthless person. Whether it be Liu Hang or Mu Yizhou he bore either deep grudge or hatred for either yet he was this unreasonably tyrannical and acted this cruel and merciless…This was because he “knew he had backing” and also wanted to vent a little.

He had followed Mu Bingyun to the Snow Song Realm in order to follow the Snow Song Realm King into the Eternal Heaven Realm so he could get the chance to see Jasmine once more. However, the Voice of Eternal Heaven had ruthlessly shattered his hopes. To him, the three words “Divine Tribulation Realm” was an incomparably cruel joke. Three months ago, he had forcibly consumed the Jadefallen Ice Soul Pellet and desperately cultivated soon after. Throughout all that, he had been holding back an extremely heavy resentment.

And Liu Hang just happened to be unfortunate enough to become the target of his venting.

And the person who had been forced to go back on their word was the Snow Song Realm’s Realm King!

He had saved the life of the Snow Song Realm King’s sister, yet she was unable to hold to the promise of bringing him to the Eternal Heaven Realm. He was incredibly dejected and there was no reason why he shouldn’t take advantage of this backing!

“Why is there so much noise, in this corner that is usually so quiet, that even the falling snow takes care as it descends? But how could being able to meet here by chance not be a wonderful surprise?”

Right when the situation had completely gone out of control, an inconceivably warm voice that resembled the spring wind melting snow, lightly fluttered over. At this moment, even the falling snow couldn’t help but slow their descent. The originally tense, suffocating atmosphere also seemed to have been brushed away by an invisible force that resemble a light breeze and silently eased.

“This voice… ah!” Mu Xiaolan quietly mumbled, then cried out in shock as she covered her mouth with her hand.

A tall figure slowly walked over from within the sky filled with fluttering snow. Donned in a white robe that surpassed the snow itself, he had a perfectly handsome jade face. His walk was light and unhurried, as though he was treading on clouds. Wherever he went, the fluttering snow would quietly fly away, as though it was unwilling to disturb him.

It seemed as though he had walked out from a painting. His smile was lighthearted but its beauty made the sky, filled with fluttering snow, lose color. Even those of the same gender would become absent-minded.

Even Yun Che’s gaze had uncontrollably stalled on him for a short period of time—he was beautiful to the point of making a man jealous (almost second to himself). He had the grace of flying snow and his formless natural aura completely exceeded the scope of ordinary people. It was as though he had been born above the clouds so all living creatures could look up at him.

“Ah! Senior Brother Hanyi… it really is Senior Brother Hanyi! Ahh!!”

Mu Luoqiu, who was tense and filled with hatred, let out an exaggerated cry. Both her hands covered her face in excitement as her eyes that overflowed with pleasant surprise nearly emitted light… It was as though she was a mortal girl seeing the prince of her dreams. Even the situation before her, even Liu Hang’s little life that was still in Yun Che’s hands, had been completely tossed out of her mind.

Senior Brother Hanyi?

Mu Hanyi!?

Mu Hanyi, the person Mu Xiaolan practically worshiped, the person she stated to be the most outstanding disciple of Ice Phoenix Divine Hall, the one who was most likely to become one of the Realm King’s direct disciples!?

          1. If you read the last part there was also one quarter of a move.

            The rest was an intro of how much he screwed-up on his promise. I would be surprised if he doesn’t spend a paragraph or two mentioning the promise in this chapter. This makes two super power offended? It counts as foreshadowing I think.

    1. It’s because both the author and the translation team have an extremely strong personal grudge against you. You know what you must do, right? If you are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for the future of this translation project, and for us all, we shall forever remember your name as a hero. Do not fear, and do not worry. You may close your eyes with no regrets.

  1. if the cultivation realm does not have these kinds of people – our MC would not have enough people to beat to a bloody pulp. cant wait how this guy ends up next – 😀

    thank you for the chapter –

      1. Yeah…it’s a forgone conclusion. I guess the author was somewhat honest when they said things in the gods realm would speed up a bit. he’s only been here for three months and he is about to beat the head (presumably strongest or most influential) deciple of the first (presumably best) palace. So he will be done fighting the deciples after this and its on to the masters. That’s a pretty quick progression. Normally it’s some weak punk their brother then their cousin then the top ranked… Right? Now it’s just the punk and his sidekick all in one go straight to the top. This just saved 4-20 chapters of threats and banter and intervention and hiding and schemes and and…attacking first though… He will lose a lot of ground for arguments…demands for him to be crippled will hold some sway.

        1. Idk… YC can threaten them with a hostage right now but he definitely can’t actually beat these people. He is probably around Divine Origin 10 or something… maybe lower… and they are least 1 full great realm above that. Although – I do expect him getting to Divine Origin realm will be a massive powerup.

    1. I can guess what will come next.
      – Hahaha you lower realm trash, you are trash your familie is trash I go hit you now!
      – Omg how dare you defend yourself!
      – You’re courting death!
      – Mommy mommy, the mc is bullying me!

  2. … He’s attacking them.

    Is Yun Che that broken already? Or did the author forget his own power levels?
    Because on what basis is Yun Che attacking first without fear ffs. (Assume this to be a typical battle scene and not Yun Che controlled)
    Yun Che is “supposed” to have brains, at least. He promised to not make trouble, and here he is picking a fight with this dude, whose cousin just got ruthlessly crushed by Yun Che. Yizhou didn’t even say anything, other than being pissed at having his family beat up, but Yun Che still attacks him? I mean, it’s all well and good if they’re dastardly villains who want to kill everyone, but in this case, is Mu Yizhou responsible for Liu Hang running around using his name? It isn’t like Yizhou told him to do that.
    Welp, I know this is Xianxia and that he’s prolly gonna be a child r*pist or something, but Yun Che provoking him was kinda uncalled for. *rolls eyes*

    1. Not just that, it’s a completely filler chapter, like always.
      And I love Yun Che’s all SJW after wiping out an entire clan for touching his family, and forcing all the members of two major sects be his labourers so that he could see his waifus although these ordinary disciples didn’t do squat to him. If you’re going to be a not the good guy-hero, just stick with it, like Leylin. Don’t be like Chu Feng.

    2. You forgot that Yun Che since he had acquired the darkness seed noticed a slight personality change in him and since he went through 3 months of hell (there’s no human that can undertake such painful methods of cultivation and be alive) this ” madness” isn’t so unreasonable to him

    1. Yeah I’d love to see him use his family thunder arts, but how will he be able to beat those two? They’re 2 big realms above him…he’s at peak sovereign and those two are at peak divine soul realm

    2. Why isn’t he able to use frozen end Devine arts? He is a core/personal deciple of a ice? Palace master… There are what? Three? Level above her max right? How can she be unable to teach it to him? Okay just me being a bit grumpy over the plot. He hasn’t said he can use it yet so ignoring a reasonable excuse to allow him to use it… Im sure he can just brute force things.

      1. To use frozen end divine arts he has to(supposed) have the blood of the ice phoenix and the sect is super stingy about it. There is no way a no divine level could handle the blood too. But when he become the ice phoenix palace disciple he had access to lots of ice divine arts, he probably can use the power of the frozen end while pretending to be one of those.
        About the familly thunder arts, they are self created by his familly, no? It makes it just a “lower realm trash” level of art, not even a ordinary divine art. Unless it was passed to the Yun Familly by the golden crow, that would make it to a higher level, but probably not so outstanding enough for Yun Che to use

  3. I’m a guy that complains when the release is getting slower and slower, but when you do a double release and then release chapters faster i can’t help but say thanks you guys dabest

  4. What the hell is Yun Che doing? The author can’t be so unreasonable as to make Yun Che able to fight late stages Divine soul now, right? Its totally stupid for him to charge at them when he can’t even open Hades normally and even if he did open Hades considering his recent breakthroughs he should be able to fight a 4th stage Divine Soul at most…

    1. He’s been in fights with worse odds… Plus he is immune to ice/water and has fire he can use if the wanted to really make enemies of everyone… Then again he is a direct deciple of the 36th palace master… Can’t he use Devine end frozen arts? Well I guess his blood line isn’t right… But can’t they give direct deciples blood? She randomly gave some to his deciple on blueplanet… Why not some purer stuff for him?

      1. He is not immune against Divine Strenght/Profound Strenght, even if he can’t be damaged by Ice/water he can be easily killed by an 8th Stage Divine Soul. And those situations you mention, he had Jasmine to guide him, now he is alone and is getting freaking arrogant, still every other situation against people who had way more strenght than he had he was always kind of wary to it, now he acts stupidly fearless.

        He can’t use his fire techniques, Mu bingyun forbade him from doing so.

        The profound arts from Snow Song Realm won’t make him stronger by so many realms, otherwise everyone else would be able to fight higher stages, and those arts aren’t as good as the way of the buddha and those ancient profound arts he got.. they are legendary-like stuff.

        1. From ch 942:
          “The second realm is the Divine Soul Realm which lets your soul become divine. It is in this realm where a profound practitioner’s soul undergoes a transformation. Reaching the Divine Soul Realm will cause your soul to transcend the ordinary. You will possess even stronger willpower and mental power. Your comprehension toward profound arts and the laws of the world will also far surpass your former self.

          From the description, you can argue, that Divine Soul Realm isn’t about increasing your divine/profound strength. Which would mean that strength wise, they aren’t necessarily above Divine Origin Realm.

          Skimping through chapters has its downsides.

    2. Maybe I’m confusing the realms due to the terms being new to me, but didn’t he just beat up two guys who were at the 7th stage just two chapters ago? Why would you say 4th stage maximum?

      1. Ugh, I’d probably have to check to confirm, but those guys were at the Divine Origin Realm, these new relatives of theirs are at the Divine Soul Realm, which is higher.

        1. Just feels weird to me, since he struggled with the last fight, he’s gone up 5 levels and his new opponent is 14 levels higher.

          Either his training wasn’t just additive, he broke though in the way of the great budda thanks to all the energy he’s been constantly absorbing, or he made the same mistake I did and thought this guy is only 4 levels above him.

          Or something else, guess will have to wait and see.

      2. Those guys were Divine Origin Realm (1st of the 7 Divine Realms) 7th stage at most, a great realm has 10 stages (directed to Emiya Archer), Mu Yizhou and the other cousin are in 8th Stage Divine Soul Realm (the woman, and this is the 2nd of the Divine Realms) and 10th Stage (Mu Yizhou) close to being Divine Tribulation (3rd great realm from the 7 Divine Realms).

        When Yun Che was 1st stage sovereign he could barely kill Xuanyuan Wentian who was 1st Stage Divine Origin, being a 5th Stage Sovereign he crippled a 7th Stage Divine Origin instantly (which means opening Rumbling Heaven he could have battle power compared to a 8th Stage Divine Origin, 9th Stage at most).. now he is at 10th Stage Sovereign, he could battle with 2nd stage Divine Soul at most 3rd stage by opening Rumbling Heaven, but there is no damn way he can put up a fight against an 8th Stage Divine Soul even if he opened Hades (freaking risky to do it). It doesn’t make any sense for him to attack them, even if he has immunity to Ice/snow/water and such he is not immune to Profound strenght or Divine Strenght so anyone at such levels could beat the crap out of him..

        (Not everything i said is directed to you, but some of it should make it more clear about your doubts on the great realms of the Divine way)

  5. A retelling of the chapter:
    – i will slap u hard
    – no i will slap u harder
    – i will slap u both like random dogs
    – i have reached ultimate level 12 face slapping divine god art
    – charge!!!1111

  6. Guess it’s back to stockpiling chapters, these minor characters are getting too much attention. I’ll come back in 10 or so chapters and see if YC is back to training again.

  7. Common sense will bend and break, bend and break, bend and break, but common sense will bend and break, my fair lady.
    Even after expanding horizons it will twist and warp, twist and warp, even after expanding horizon it’ll twist and warp my fair lady.

    Oh I can hear it shattering already.

  8. I think when the author promised that in the realm of the gods there will be a high rate of development of the plot … He simply had in mind the issue of empty and useless chapters in 2 or 3 times more often! = _ = “

  9. Has everyone forgot how not too long ago it was mentioned by multiple people (including Yun Che himself) that his personality has changed (both subtly and greatly) since he obtained the darkness seed and allowed the devil origin orb to grow and be unsealed?

    This sudden aggressiveness isn’t totally out of character at this point.

    1. Exactly and we can’t forget that he went through 3 months of hell using a cultivation method that would kill any other human. He didn’t even went crazy after all this pain, he is just a little mad lol

  10. Thanks for the chapter! Blowing off steam to vent…making use of his status…seems logical to me that he’ll try to get away w/whatever he can even if he pisses some people off. And yes, he’ll just get reprimanded go back into secluded training…jump some levels and piss people off yet again…lol it’s still a good read.

  11. Why is it so surprising that Yun Che managed to go up by 2 smaller realms in 3 months? Just look at Mu Xiaolan – she’s only 19 years old, yet at the 4th level of the Divine Origin Realm. Assuming she starts cultivating at the age of 5, that means she’s covered 10 greater realms or 104 smaller realms in 14 years, which is an average rate of 1 greater realm every 1.5 years, or an average rate of ~2 smaller realms every 3 months.

    Cultivation speeds in the God Realm haven’t been calculated at all by the author. The fact that it’s possible to reach the Divine Origin Realm before the age of 25 without Yun Che’s bullshit techniques is already a piece of utter horseshit.

    1. i think is so surprising, NOT because is a big improvement, but because with the pill, it’s supposed to be a upgrade to at least the 3 level of origin realm.

      but yun che has the devil veins, so his cultivation is SLOOOOWWWWW.

      in the gods realm, cultivating the mortal stages, its really easy because the energy there is several times denser, way too much denser, only when cultivating the divine, its get harder.

  12. This Hanyi guy just showed up and I already hate him. Whenever a story spends so much time talking about how perfect and nice and beautiful some guy is, there’s a very high chance that he’s secretly an asshole. This isn’t even the first time that character archetype has appeared in this story. Remember the guy from the Yun family who Xiao Yun and the rest constantly praised? He turned out to have tried to assassinate Xiao Yun and betrayed his family. Or how about that Xiao guy from the beginning of the story? How he was one of the few who always treated YC kindly despite having crippled veins. Turns out it was all an act and he’d been planning to take YC’s bride for himself and poisoned YC to death.
