Chapter 1010: Deadly Situation

“Oh? I never expected you to possess such tremendous wealth!”

Marquis Wu Yun sized Yi Yun up. In the Immortal Rain Sect, he was no longer considered part of the younger generation. Once Immortal Rain Sect disciples from the younger generation matured and became powerful enough, they were conferred with various noble titles. A title like ’Marquis’ was one of the highest ranks; thus, his powerful strength was evident.

However, even though Marquis Wu Yun had a promising future, he only had a top Supremacy-level item when it came to treasures. It was a treasure that was exceedingly close to the Divine Lord level, so he was naturally tempted when he heard about Yi Yun’s wealth.

The others had similar intentions as well. Their wealth was incomparable to Marquis Wu Yun’s. Everyone who came to the Azure Wood Great World came in search for opportunities. But from the present situation, it appeared as though the Azure Wood Great World was not a land littered with treasures as they imagined. During their search, not only did they fail to obtain anything, they had also faced all sorts of danger. The Apocalyptic Fumes had left them with a lingering fear. They had been lucky to be situated in the periphery of the Apocalyptic Fumes, otherwise, they would have been reduced to ash.

“With a mere half-step Dao Manifestation realm cultivation level, that Yi Yun is no different to an ant. Yet, he has such valuable treasures. What a fool!”

Many people leered at Yi Yun with all sorts of thoughts.

From their point of view, Yi Yun was like a savory piece of meat. They did not think much of Yi Yun’s resistance, but there were two things that were a little trickier. Firstly, Yi Yun’s master was Felicitous Rain Lord, who made them apprehensive. The other reason was the problem of splitting the treasure amongst twenty people after killing him.

“Marquis Wu Yun, if you were to do anything to Yi Yun, I, White Brows will not say a thing. I can swear on the heavens that it will not be leaked. Felicitous Rain Lord will not learn of this either,” said an old man whose white brows reached his ears. He blinked his eyes with a teasing look in them. He exuded a strange aura and he was the only elderly person amongst the twenty people.

Yue Yingsha’s heart sank when she saw the old man. Her intuition told her that the old man was not an enemy to be trifled with.

Warriors had the greatest potential when in their youth. Some would even cultivate all the way to the level of a Supremacy in one fell swoop. However, once their potential was expended, their cultivation level would hardly progress, even with a lifespan that spanned millions of years.

But such people would dedicate time and effort to raise their combat strength through other means when they knew that they had no future in further cultivation. For example, they would employ things like puppets, poison or formation arrays. The old man wasn’t striking, but the strange aura that he exuded made Yue Yingsha have some reserved fears.

They were not his match!

“Yi Yun!” Yue Yingsha transmitted her voice to Yi Yun. Her voice was somewhat anxious. Although she was unafraid of death, she was the successor of the Azure Wood Manor. She shouldered the mission of making the Azure Wood Manor prosper again. Even though she was likely destined to never accomplish it, she did not wish to die in the place that they were in.

Yi Yun did not reply because he was fully concentrated on something else. His thoughts were interfaced with the three sword Qi in his Dantian that Felicitous Rain Lord had given him. His energy vision was scanning his surroundings. He knew that even if he released the three sword Qi simultaneously, it was impossible for him to defeat the enemies in front of him. Yi Yun only planned on using the three sword Qi in a bid to carve a route of escape from his dire situation.

However, just as Yi Yun was searching for an opportunity to flee, he suddenly saw unusual points of light in the Purple Crystal’s energy vision.

The points of light were buried beneath the soil. They were sparkling like stars, suffusing rainbow colors on the surface. They looked like unusually beautiful gems buried underground.

If not for him using his energy vision, Yi Yun would not have discovered their existence. What were they!?

Yi Yun was baffled. The rainbow points of light effused a chilly aura.

When he penetrated the ground with his mental perception in an attempt to probe the points of light, Yi Yun felt his soul sea hurt. The rainbow points of light rumbled, as though they had awoken from a deep and long slumber.

“Yue Yingsha, do you know what’s in ‘White Bone Ridge’?” Yi Yun inquired quickly with a voice transmission. Yue Yingsha faltered for a moment before replying with a voice transmission, “I’m not sure. The records of White Bone Ridge in the sect only mention a large amount of bone ash.”

Although the Azure Wood Manor had records regarding the Door to the 33 Skies, the information was not detailed. There were many regions that were not completely explored.

However, Yue Yingsha’s words made Yi Yun generate several guesses.

Bone ash… could it be…

A sudden thought made Yi Yun’s heart palpitate.

“Old man White Brow. What talk is that? You swear upon the heavens to egg me to kill that punk?”

Marquis Wu Yun laughed. He knew very clearly that White Brow’s swearing upon the heavens to keep it a secret meant that Felicitous Rain Lord would not know that he had killed Yi Yun in the immediate future. And as time passed, Felicitous Rain Lord might forget this matter. After all, a half-step Dao Manifestation realm disciple was not necessarily important to a Divine Lord.

“You want to kill him using my hand? The treasure is split amongst us, but the risk of offending Felicitous Rain Lord is borne by me? That’s a great plan of yours!” Marquis Wu Yun said sarcastically. Immediately, he looked at Yi Yun and said, “Punk, I do not intend to kill you. Know what’s good for yourself and turn over your interspatial ring to me. I’ll spare you if you remove the mental imprint and kneel down before Shi Ping and Shi Fei to apologize with a kowtow.”

Marquis Wu Yun’s words were overbearing, but at that moment, the man in the Daoist outfit walked beside Yi Yun. He said with a smile, “Young man, hand me your interspatial ring and I can guarantee your safety.”

“You should give it to me instead.” Another person stood forward — the woman with black fingernails.

Be it intentional or not, all of them released their auras. The stifling feeling that they emitted was like there were powerful beasts lurking in their bodies

However, when these auras emanated, the rousing of the dots of light became even more obvious.

“It seems like they have awoken.”

Yi Yun was in full concentration as he circulated his mental energy to its limits. He injected it deep underground and constantly stimulated the points of light.

The vibrations of the points of light turned more intense and slowly, green-colored eyes seemed to light up underground.

They are awake! Yi Yun held his breath!

Whew! Whew! Whew! Whew!

Large swaths of rainbow-colored dots of light drilled towards the surface rapidly.

These points of light only used a few seconds to reach the ground beneath the group’s feet from a half a kilometer underground.

Yi Yun discovered that other than him having his energy vision, no one present had detected the approaching points of light.

The points of light lurked just inches away like they were gathering strength.

At that moment, Yi Yun suddenly laughed. Despite being surrounded by twenty people, with many of them far exceeding his strength, Yi Yun’s laugh had surprised everyone.

“Why are you laughing when death is knocking at your door?”

Marquis Wu Yun frowned. He liked it when his enemies were horrified because of his might, but he did not like such people who he could not control.

Now, Yi Yun was clearly in a dire situation, but the smile on his face did not look like it was faked.

  1. Not really happy with this development. What are the odds? I would rather have a group of Immortal Rain Sect disciples looking to regain their face rather than those two idiots randomly appearing in a place like that as servants. No way they would be taken there. Sorry. This is the author digging past (and resolved) conflicts when he doesn’t need to. At least not that way. It would be better if Yi Yun found no one at all while he explores the Abyss and is explained more about the place. Great chance for world building. Great chance for development for this new girl. But no. Let’s have meaningless conflict that will be solved by the end of the arc. Even though we already have that with the Phantom Sect guy. Yeah.

    1. It’s not meaningless if it further develops the story and there is logic. The desperation of ruin martial artist, their previous standing in the clan and the growing conflict between that clan and Yi-Yun. All these can foster Yi-Yun growth and destiny. The author is developing his story TMW. Like any art work only the finished product can be judged. So, just try to remain open minded and enjoy the process. Hey Liron, you can also start your own art work, I will be happy to be a critic or sound board.

      1. Seem to have a problem with your logic. Do cultivators seem overly attached to sentiment? I don’t get that impression at all. Why would they even allow two has beens to go get a chance at treasures.. THAT is the reason those two shouldn’t be there and the gist of the first post. Admittedly, they USED to have that qualification, but now, out of billions of people probably clamoring to go, those two were chosen?

        1. Even if they were’t crippled, it’s unlikely they would be “clamoring to go.” They hadn’t even condensed their Dao fruits yet at the competition. If it weren’t for Yi Yun wanting to gain insights into Chaos Dao, Felicitous Rain Lord wouldn’t even think of letting him go. Shi Ping and Shi Fei have nothing to lose, and are no different from Wu Yun’s servants at this point. If they die, the sect wouldn’t really care so much since they’re already crippled.

        2. First of all, it’s not my logic, it’s the author’s. Second it could be call cannon fodder or some other reason that the author has not made clear yet. My point is if you can except a purple crystal card that has all these abilities then stay open mind, enjoy and let the author do his thing.

          1. People read these novels because they exempt these wuxia and supernatural power from the very start. Not to mention this purple crystal thing. The point here is these two cripples are not a purple crystal or supernatural thing. They are people or humans. Or should i say these two appearing there or surviving the storm is indeed a super ultra natural thing though. Lol.

          2. I believe they are crippled in their future growth path, but are still martial warriors.

  2. I’m honestly sick of the whole development “Give me your wealth and kneel and I’ll let you live/leave your corpse intact.” **** them. Anyone in their right mind would refuse since anyone that would say that is 99.999999% likely to either kill you anyway or cripple you.

    1. Well, this usually happened when:
      a) Enemy isn’t strong but greedy.
      b) Enemy unsure of MC real power.
      c) Enemy wary of MC background. (Currently this damn Rain sect is wary of MC’s current teacher)

    2. Robberies without killing happen all the time. Most people would choose to give up their belongings for even the chance to live. Killing him would also risk Rain Lord taking revenge, but robbing him not so much.

  3. I just want to know a] how these fools survived to cloud without any losses when they have no protection since YY had to use a treasure and the evil sect lost almost all their people and B] why it seems any trashy disciple from any decent sect can enter this area of death (considering Felicitous Rain Lord who is stupid strong had to be careful with just himself and YY)

    1. A) These fools survived unharmed because they were on the periphery of the fumes and don’t forget almost all of them are from the IRS. Their dao domains can merge and link with almost any other domain and the power will grow exponentially. Plus, it looks like they have several dao palace realm people.
      B) The trashy people are “encouraged” to go to places of death because they are disposable. If they find anything of value they will have to give it to their leader of face death. Simple if you think about it.

  4. I see the complaints and understand them but…

    There’s some sweet sweet irony here. The last time Shi Fei and Shi Ping were up against Yi Yun, he used something underground to attack them. Now we have the same situation where Yi Yun is being cornered by arrogant people from the very same sect and they’ll get a dose of what the Shi brothers originally encountered.

    Maybe that’s also why Yi Yun is laughing. haha!
