Chapter 189: I’ll Be Waiting for You to Kill Me in the Future

Feng Rong pulled out a palm sized blood knife from between her eyebrows and grabbed onto it.

“Blood Arts: Soul Shackle!”

Feng Rong waved her knife as the knife drew crimson streaks. The streaks of blood intersected in the air to form a bloody net.

A soul shackling, mind consciousness suspending bloody aura was unleashed from the bloody net.

“Cover!” Feng Rong pointed at Blood Shadow.

The blood colored net fell on Blood Shadow, attempting to nail down his soul and restrict his consciousness.

Both Qin Lie and Yi Yuan felt their souls tighten as the thought of being imprisoned inside a cage spawned terror within their hearts right after the net had formed.

While watching the blood colored net fall onto Blood Shadow, Qin Lie’s mind shook as he realized that every soul type mind energy seemed to have been shackled as soon as the bloody net was formed.

The blood was obviously aimed at Blood Shadow, yet he had felt his own soul tighten as a strange feeling caused him to feel uncomfortable all over.

“Qin Bing! Yi Yuan! Take one each and leave this place as soon as possible!” Feng Rong yelled coldly. Her beautiful eyes shone with a faint bloody light.

If someone looked at them carefully, they would realize that there seemed to be droplets of blood shaking deep inside her pupils.

“Take care, Instructor Feng!”

Yi Yuan had planned to leave a while back. The moment he heard Feng Rong’s words, he immediately scooped Lian Rou in his arms and rushed outside immediately.

After a moment’s hesitation, Qin Lie made up his mind as well and ran towards Tang Siqi.

The battle between the Netherpassage experts was definitely not something he could interfere with. Before Blood Shadow’s blood slave had returned to his true body, he only had thirty percent of his strength. Moreover, after Blood Shadow had been assaulted by the Terminator Profound Bomb’s explosion, Qin Lie could even beat him while Blood Shadow was down and slightly had the upper hand while he was severely injured.

But now that the blood slave had returned to Blood Shadow’s body, the broken bones on Blood Shadow’s body vanished and his aura’s strength grew many times over…

Qin Lie knew very well that it would be incredibly difficult for him to pose a threat to Blood Shadow right now. If he really pushed himself to stay, he would only become Feng Rong’s burden.

And so, just like Yi Yuan, Qin Lie carried Tang Siqi with him and headed in the direction Yi Yuan had left.

Dark Asura Hall’s Yuan Tianya was here, Dark Tower’s tower lord, Di Shijiu, was also here, and even Shadow Tower’s Liang Yangzu was hiding in the shadows. Even Blood Spear had missed the three entering the city. Their careful plotting was obviously not aimed at a tiny Natal Opening Realm martial practitioner like him, but to destroy Blood Spear itself!

They had come for Lang Xie and Feng Rong!

Qin Lie had seen through this fact very quickly.

“Yuan Tianya, Di Shijiu, Liang Yangzu… who else? Blood Shadow did not kill Yi Yuan and said that Purple Mist Sea had wanted Yi Yuan to be alive. Could it be that Purple Mist Sea has joined this battle as well?”

Qin Lie’s expression was serious. A bad premonition slowly grew inside his heart as he thought of tonight’s events.

He suddenly recalled the letter Liang Zhong had sent over. Liang Zhong had told him that Armament Sect was not a good place to stay for long and that he better leave as soon as possible.

“Liang Zhong is from Dark Asura Hall. He should’ve known about today’s matter for a while now. Perhaps even Seven Fiends Valley and Cloud Sky Mountain was also in on this!” The more Qin Lie thought, the colder he felt.

At this moment, he was carrying Tang Siqi’s voluptuous and lush body in his arms, but there was not the slightest bit of lust in his mind. He only felt chilled to the bones.

“If the five great forces had joined hands to attack Armament Sect, then where in the world should I go?” Qin Lie was at a loss.

“Qin Bing!” At the alleyway, Yi Yuan exclaimed with a serious expression while standing and holding Lian Rou.

Qin Lie walked over while holding Tang Siqi.

“Listen.” Yi Yuan said.

Qin Lie focused his mind, channeled the Records of Geocentric Magnetism and, with his soul probing for the fluctuations on the ground, listened to surroundings.

He heard the cries of fighting, the messy footsteps of martial practitioners, the intense sounds of combat…

“There is a stone building this way. Let’s go up and take a look.” Yi Yuan seemed to have predicted something and, after a sigh, led the way up the stone building.

Qin Lie followed right after him.

At this moment, the duo had left the secluded district where Shadow Tower was. They could not hear the sound of Feng Rong and Blood Shadow fighting either, much less Lang Xie’s current condition.

The location they were in right now could also be considered rather secluded. It was still a ways away from the bustling city area.

While holding a woman each, they climbed the tallest stone building and looked into the distance from the top.

They could see many houses were on fire and many martial practitioners slipping by swiftly at the faraway bustling districts.

“They’re not from Armament Sect,” Yi Yuan sighed softly.

Qin Lie frowned. He channeled his spirit energy and attempted to look at Armament Sect’s entrance, to look inFlame Volcano’s direction.

However, both Armament Sect and Flame Volcano were pitch black under the night sky. Because he was too far away, he could not see the situation over there.

“Qin Bing, to tell you the truth, I came to Armament Sect purely for Lian Rou. I have no interest whatsoever in artifact forging, and I only cared a little bit about Blood Spear’s blood pools, but now…” Yi Yuan shook his head bitterly, “Blood Spear probably won’t survive this.”

Qin Lie’s face was solemn.

“I’m sorry, but I won’t be returning to the sect anymore because it will be suicidal.” Yi Yuan looked at Lian Rou and said gently, “Lian Rou is with me now anyway. I’ll be taking my leave. I want to bring her safely away from Armament City.”

Qin Lie continued to stay silent.

He knew that Yi Yuan had always been a very smart and rational person. It was only in front of Lian Rou that he would become impulsive and show a kind of madness only a young person would have.

Most of the time, Yi Yuan had concealed himself. He was very good putting up that harmless facade in front of other people.

The fact is, Yi Yuan was never a good person.

This could be seen when he had attacked all the outer sect disciples at the food hall when he first entered the sect.

Qin Lie even felt that Yi Yuan’s true strength might be slightly stronger than Pang Feng’s. That feeling was now growing stronger and stronger.

“Five years ago, when Lian Rou had come to Purple Mist Sea, it was one of the lowest points in my life. My muscles and veins had fallen into disorder because I went against my seniors and cultivated a forbidden art in Purple Mist Sea. Not only would my realm not be able to grow, it would even deteriorate over time.” Yi Yuan looked at Lian Rou gently.

“Then I was demoted from the most talented martial practitioner of Purple Mist Sea to a mere door guide. Everyone taunted and jeered at me that year. I was looked down upon by the people I once thought to be garbage, and I had disappointed the senior who had expected great things from me.”

“It was also that year that Lian Rou came to Purple Mist Sea. As her guide, I was ordered to take her to visit all of the beautiful places in Purple Mist Sea.”

“She had assumed that I was just a common doorman in Purple Mist Sea, but she did not look down on me. While I took her to visit those places of beauty, I felt tranquility from her happiness, and that tranquility was just the right thing that soothed the frustration and worry in my heart and helped me cultivate that forbidden art successfully in the end.”

“I met her during the lowest point of my life where her tranquility calmed my heart. That is why I have come from Purple Mist Sea. I have come to take her with me to leave Armament Sect alive!”

Yi Yuan looked at Qin Lie.

Qin Lie frowned. “Why are you telling me this? Is this your special way of saying goodbye?”

Yi Yuan’s expression was a little complicated. After a moment of doubt he revealed, “In truth, before I had come from Purple Mist Sea, I already knew that Armament Sect would face this danger. The fact is, I had told you about this and brought you to Lang Xie and Feng Rong because I was hoping that you could bring Lang Xie and Feng Rong to meet Blood Shadow together…”

He paused for a moment at this point, and under Qin Lie’s cold gaze, he finally continued, “This was what Purple Mist Sea wanted me to do from the beginning.”

Qin Lie’s expression changed greatly.

Shock also appeared in both Tang Siqi and Lian Rou’s eyes, whose bodies’ spirit energy were shackled. It was as if they could not believe Yi Yuan’s identity was this complex.

“Purple Mist Sea wanted me to do this, but they did not order me. But I know their thoughts.” Yi Yuan took in a deep breath and elaborated, “I know that if I had done it, then Purple Mist Sea would seek them out and negotiate with them to protect Lian Rou’s life. The fact is my judgement was not incorrect. They allowed me to take Lian Rou and leave. This means Purple Mist Sea recognized what I have done for them.”

He looked at Qin Lie and said very calmly, “In my opinion, as long as Lian Rou is alive, I don’t really care too much if Lord Lang Xie, Lord Feng Rong, and you die. Qin Bing, I’m leaving. The reason I have told you everything I did was because I think of you as half a friend. I don’t want to lie to you, and I don’t want you to be kept in the dark, to let you know nothing…”

While carrying Lian Rou, Yi Yuan jumped down from the stone building and looked at Qin Lie one final time from below. “I’ll be waiting for you to kill me in the future.”

Once he finished, Yi Yuan opened his umbrella as a shocking sharpness abruptly emanated from his body. It was as if a sharp blade was hidden inside his body, giving off a feeling of great danger.

Qin Lie’s pupils shrunk as he looked deeply at Yi Yuan’s departing visage. He said indifferently, “So this is your true power.”

  1. I liked this Yi Yuan plot, he was never told to do something, but was expected to do it and he pulled it off to the letter, i cant hate him for doing that, he just wanted to save the person who saved him in his darkest hour, i wonder what Qin Bing will do to him.

    1. … Good Question but because he loves Ying Yushi as much as Yi Yuan loves Lang Rou I think, he will fight him slap him in the face and leave at that drinking with him. I can’t bring myself to hate this guy.

  2. While I don’t dislike him…. I kinda don’t want him to get the girl… just don’t…

    He went against her and destroyed her home, and yet is still trying to get the girl…

    Don’t like that…. I know it’d have been destroyed even without him… but still….

    Thanks for the chapter XD

    1. “He went against her and destroyed her home”

      Where? All he did was do what he could so that she can survive the storm with him. He didn’t destroy her home. Armament Sect still exists. It’s just that it will be destroyed. This “trap” he made is pointless. Qin Lie would have come anyway. Feng Rong and Lang Xie too. There’s literally NOTHING Yi Yuan did that wouldn’t happen without him there.

      1. huuuuuum Qin Lie would not have come if the elder of the outer sect chose someone else rather than Yi Yuan, Lang xie would have come any way, ordered by the sect, but feng rong most likely would not be here if not for Qin lie going there himself. Sooooo He is kinda responsible for Feng Rong being there.

    2. We hope Qing Bing kills him. He may have wanted to save the girl, but he still betrayed Qing Bing, and he should pay the price for it (which it seems he is prepared to do).

      We would kill him. We don’t care what your reasons are, if you betray us, you will pay the price.

    1. While I also dislike him, how did what he did put Lian Rou & Tang Siqi’s lives in danger? It’s not like he had them kidnap those both girls. While he did plan on somehow bringing Lang Xie & Feng Rong to be ambushed by the Five Sects top experts, he didn’t plan on having the girls get kidnapped. His Sect didn’t command him to do this but he knew if he did this he could guaranteed Lian Rou’s safety. Blood Shadow kidnapped then since he couldn’t do anything as Qin Lie wasn’t coming out of the Sect.

  3. The Sects to be massacred just keep growing. It’s going to get to a point where he has enough power to take them all out and it won’t be a fair fight it will be a massacre and who can blame him.

    It may be time for a lightning storm.

  4. He wants to save the one important to him no matter what? That’s fine. But what annoys me is this:

    ***

    Yi Yuan suddenly stopped begging as a trace of bitterness appeared on his face. He thought, “That’s right, things are no longer what they were in the past. Today’s Qin Bing is no longer yesterday’s Qin Bing. He might not necessarily have thought much about our relationship at all…”

    “There is no need to trouble the elders about this matter,” Qin Lie answered in a serious manner.

    “I thought so. This guy is such a realist, I’ve misjudged him,” Yi Yuan smiled bitterly on the inside, thinking that Qin Lie had put him down gently.

    ***

    He was plotting all along (more or less) but expected Qin Lie to value their relationship. This really gets on my nerves.

    1. As far as Yi Yuan is concerned I think he did really value there relationship and that’s precisly why he did not kill Qin Lie and the end of the chapter and chose to wait for Qin lie to actually come and kill him later, so that he can atone for the crime he commited against his friends.

    2. Well just because he didn’t necessarily value their friendship himself, doesn’t mean he can’t think Qin Lie would.

      I’d say he misjudged him less in a sense that ‘I misjudged him, I thought he’d value our friendship and help me out’ and more in a sense of ‘I misjudged him, I thought he’d value his friends, so I could get him to help me out’.

      So he thought of it less as a bond to earnestly ask for favour, and more of a bond to manipulate him into giving him a favour.

    3. agreed.
      i’ve been wanting to comment but try to suppressed it for a few chapters. have to say, the author did a rather bad job in this arc (armament sect). he introduces some new characters, but failed in term of consistency from two of them. i tried to understand them, but as the story goes it irritated me more and more. thankfully the are gone now (right?).

      1. I also enjoy it when things are open and above-board these guys lacked a little matter, though I kind of liked the idea of Yi Yuan being a bro he isn’t up to par with Gao Yu, hoping to see Gao Yu as the super bro and wingman after Qin Lie is stronger, these characters were just too bland and Lian Rou was like a snake to Qin Lie

  5. So he’s basically kidnapping Lian Rou? Wow, that was truly unexpected. And here I thought Qin Lien had found a friend. I guess his only friends remain Gao Yu and the Ling survivor; I wonder if we’ll see them again.

    1. Not too sure Kidnapping is the right word … I think he really do trully love her and the best way for her to survive is for him to protect her and take her with him, or she would be abused by other, she is a inner seclt disciple after all, people would have design for her. I think he also know that Qin Lie got his own secret wich he don’t know and probably have a way out of this , and is very likely to be able to actually get out of this easier if he knows what is going on and is alone with Tang Siqi, or alone alone, because he dropped Tang Siqi somewhere.

      1. Whether his intentions were good or not, it is still abduction.

        Abduction def.:
        “the action of forcibly taking someone away against their will.”

        Since she is unable to say whether she is willing to be taken away or not, it counts as abduction.

        We would agree that at least at this point it isn’t kidnapping (which is abduction plus holding them captive), but we suspect it will become kidnapping soon.

      1. No, but taking them away against their will is abduction. Since Lian Rou is unable to state whether she wants to be taken away or not (and we can reasonably assume she wishes to remain with Tang Siqi), this counts as abduction.

        Saving them from the situation and taking them back to the sect would be saving them, however him taking her away to his sect whilst she is still unable to agree to it (given the gag), and with us being able to reasonably infer that she doesn’t agree, or would protest if given the chance, is abduction.

  6. Ugh, I never liked the “i did it for the people I love” bad guy characters, because for some odd reason they rarely try to come up with better alternatives.
    On another note wtf was the point of that Lian Shanon-somthing guy trying to become the next sect master if they had already planned on destroying it from the beginning?

    1. I guess they weren’t 100 percent certain about whether armament sect’s backer was really gone; infiltrating it would be much easier, albeit longer, and would be a lot less risky; but now that Qin Lie caused a reaction from all 12 pillars and showed he had a concept, they probably realised they had no chance to infiltrate it, and decided to destroy the sect before he could make it too powerful.

    2. I think they never thought about destroying it. Firtly they though about Controlling them by putting a puppet of theirs as the sect master. Then Qin Lie came out with his concept and Pillar trick, Therefore what originaly meant to be taking over changed into, the copper force are scared, an other would appear and would rather destroy it before it’s too late. Wich lead to the current situation. Yi Yuan understood what was coming, and he read what purple mist would have wanted him to do in this situation, he was not aware of the plan but he understood what they wanted him to do non the less.

    3. Better alternative for whom? That was the best alternative for him and Lian Rou. Good and evil is usually a matter of point of view. Yi Yuan seems to me to be a good person to whom he cares

  7. Amazingly written character.
    I wonder how Armament Sect didnt get any wind of all this plotting against them. Then again I suppose even if they did, their sect master was a complete dingus.

    Thanks for the chapter.

    1. What the hell are you talking about? He saved his girl! And what is your problem with Lian Rou? The girl is a bit silly but she did nothing to deserve to die. If it were not for her, Qin Lie would have been killed by the insects of Liang Shaoyang

  8. Thanks for the chapters.

    I might go away from most people’s view but i srly don’t dislike Yi Yuan. I think that guy did everything that he could do without betraying his familly and his sect, yet, at the same time, trying to help Qin Lie. And he knows he betrayed his friend expectation. If you think about it, for his sect he should have killed Qin Lie just there but he told him everything and left. In my opinion this is really manly and a beautifull act of friendship, even with everything else he did prior to that.

    Now onto the real talk what do you guy’s think Qin Lie will do ? I’m betting on killing a natal opening practicioner with his forst transplant his mask on him and make him appear like Qin Bing. Then dispear in the shadow with Tang Siqi. Maybe he will go back to armament sect to get the material for the girls artifact, finish them somewhere and deliver to them by some mean. May be actually using Tang Siqi to do it. She is after all a great artificer, it would not be impossible for her to strike a deal with the 7 valley sect (or whatever the name).

    Well these are my thought and opinion on that does anyone think like me ?

    Oh Btw Am I the only one to feel like those chapter are too short and that the action is to intense i can’t help but wanting to devour the next chapter (wich are not out yet T_T).

    And also, who is betting with me that the one protecting amament sect actually is LI MU ? It’s an feeling I got. Between the “I knew an artificer” and the “You should be safe once you become an inner sect disciple of Armament sect”, with the “he left the continent a long time ago and we don’t know if he is alive today”, and the fact that Li Mu left the continent a long time ago and came back rescently… I don’t know if my thinking is right but that’s a felling I got.

    1. I don’t really blame him to be honest; these are battles between sects after all, and all he did was just manipulate things slightly; it would have happened anyway, and he was just being loyal; it was armament sect who seemed to believe that everyone from other forces would be willing to betray their homes for them.

      I would say though, I doubt armament sect would have lasted much longer, even without the immediate schemes; that sect master seems to embody that ‘high and mighty’ attitude artificers tend to have to an unhealthy degree, judging the martial way as useless and a waste of time in comparison; people gathering their own materials I can understand since otherwise that’d make artificers less valued since only money would be needed to get one, and their job isn’t simple anyway; but their whole attitude, even when they fail, would probably come off as too obnoxious when an entire sect has the attitude.

      I like the idea of faking his death and joining Liang Zhong’s group. He took a liking to Qin Lie and Qin Bing, and helped them both out, before and after they became renowned, so he’d probably trust him enough to go with him. If he does fake his death, or has Qin Bing vanish, I hope he meets Ling Yushi as Qin Lie first to let her know he’s safe, since then he wouldn’t have to worry about being chased by multiple factions.

    2. Regarding Li Mu, when Xie Jingxuan mentioned the Spirit Gathering board was made by Li Mu, it seemingly didn’t ring any bells to Armament sect elders.
      So if it is really him, they should know him by a different name.

  9. I don’t blame him for doing the best for him and the woman he loves. If a ship is sinking, would you waste time trying to save people you do not care about? This would not make any sense
