Chapter 62: Return
At a time like this, there is no way that the arrival of Wing Sect and Spirit Sect would be a good thing.
Shi Xueyun and several elders got up from their place and walked outside to see what they all here for. When they got outside, Wing Sect and Spirit Sect strode in with an imposing manner. Their cultivation is 6th Level of Core Condensation, and they are all in their thirties, compared with Shi Xueyun, the gap is just so obvious.
Shi Xueyun is only in her early twenties. In term of cultivation she is much better than them as she is in Seventh Level Core Condensation. She is expected to be a Spirit Core in a few years with no troubles. This is a form of talent that rarely existed in this cultivation era. This is why that she can maintain her position as a palace lord so firmly.
Throughout the history of Jade Palace, there has never been any strong cultivator in spirit core. This is why she has a very strong hold of the Jade Palace Lord, as cultivation and talent is all that matters in this world.
“What is the purpose of two masters come to my palace?” Shi Xueyun is releasing her aura to show these two her strength. “If I remember correctly, there is still one week away before Heavens Immersing Ancient Ruins begin, besides, it’s just weird for you to come here instead of heading directly to Heavens Immersing Ancient Ruins.”
Standing in front Shi Xueyun is Sect Master of Wing Sect, Qing Yuncheng and Sect Master of Spirit Sect, Jia Zhiyun. There are a few elders from each sect as well, following their Sect Master walking in arrogantly. This spells more and more like troubles.
“Palace Lord Shi, our purpose for coming here is actually quite simple. We demand that you give up your share of quota for Heavens Immersing Ancient Ruins. We expected a compensation for the damage your disciple caused.”
They come just for this share of quota, if not for this, they will surely come to Jade Palace demanding responsibility of Yi Tianyun actions much faster.
“Yi Tianyun has already made a statement that he is no longer our disciple, and he is only our outer disciple to begin with. In that regard we can’t take responsibility for his actions outside the palace!” second elder immediately refuted this accusation as she is not willing to take any responsibility whatsoever.
“Bullshit! Then if we send someone to kill you, and then make our own statement that they are not from our place, what would you do then?” Qing Yuncheng countered the second elder argument immediately.
This argument by Qing Yuncheng is really sound, making it hard to justify Yi Tianyun’s actions.
“What a joke! This is what you’ve always done, again and again. Your disciple is the one who provoke Yi Tianyun. Your disciple is too arrogant to recognize his own weakness, he slander Yi Tianyun by saying that the weapons he forged is fake and inferior. And he even dare to do a sneak attack when he already lose in a duel. There is no one to blame for his death!”Shi Xueyun said with a cold face, “If you do the same act as your disciple to me, i will definitely do the same thing! Slander and sneak attack, even your death can’t pay for your act!”
Her words is really harsh. She is known for a lord who’s not afraid to cause any troubles. That is proven now as she is not afraid to face pressure given by two sect masters. Although that she is sure that neither Jade Palace nor Yi Tianyun have ever crossed path with Spirit Sect, but since they also come here along with Wing Sect, that fact alone already proved they’re up to no good.
A few elders is shocked by Shi Xueyun’s arrogant behavior. She sure is powerful enough to make Jade Palace stronger, but at this rate she could cause a disaster too.
“Who can prove your words?” QingYuncheng sneered: “As the matter of fact, we want to bring him back for questioning, but he killed people that comes after him peacefully. This is unexpected from Jade Palace to act like this. Its so unreasonable.”
Qing Yuncheng quickly twist his words, distorting the fact to his benefits.
“Do I look like a three years old to you? Do you think I believe that you just want to bring him in for questioning? What a joke!” Shi Xueyun waves her hands in dismissal “Don’t even think about getting hold on my share of quota, I want you all to leave my place, we are going to prepare to enter Heavens Immersing Ancient Ruins!”
Shi Xueyun is assertive as usual and she didn’t have a second thought on people like them. However, she knows that the people she argue with here have a strong influence, if that’s not the case she would’ve attacked them as they speak.
Although she is only on her early twenties, she is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Mistreatment that she received is far more cruel than what she faced now, but she wouldn’t hesitate to kill is she has to, that is just how she was taught, to never be a pushover, never give up, and let no one stop her.
Qing Yuncheng’s face becomes much more enraged than before. He didn’t expect Shi Xueyun to be so hard to talk to. It’s a form of humiliation to mistreat not one but two sect master so casually at a time.
“Palace Lord Shi, seems like we don’t get the respect that we deserve, now don’t blame any of us if this becomes a terrible situation for you.” Qing Yuncheng made a gesture to the elders that comes with him, and they began to surround Shi Xueyun and also block the escape route.
The two sect join up together and get ready to fight the Lord of Jade Palace.
This scene immediately worried the disciples of Jade Palace. Is this scene enveloping in front of them really gonna happens?
“Sect Master Qing, what do you intend to do?” Great Elder stood up and speaks with anger: “Do you want to force our hands, our comprehensive strength is indeed not as good as you, but if you angered us then don’t blame us if we this act of yours back fired.”
“Angry? Suit yourself!” Qing Yuncheng began to laugh at second elders “What other cards do you still have in hand? Asking for Azure Mansion disciple’s help? Or bringing back your old ancestor that who secluded themselves to cultivate?”
Listening to his words, the people in the room sensed that he doesn’t seems to be afraid at all.
The great elders all becomes silent, knowing that Qing Yuncheng already know their hands yet not worrying at all.
“What’s wrong? Out of options already? Even if your old ancestors really come out from their seclusion, they are only in Third Level Core Condensation, they can’t possibly beat us. Azure Mansion already told us they wouldn’t interfere with this matter, such embarrassment, marrying your disciples into their clan hoping to get some sort of help in the future but getting none! Hahaha. . .!” Qing Yuncheng laughed out loud.
“Yes, Azure Mansion told us that they will not interfere with this matter.” At the same time, a person came from outside, Chief Pavilion Lord of Wind Pavilion showing himself and he is a Core Condensation cultivator too.
He also brings a few elders with him and the lowest cultivator he brought is at First Level Core Condensation.
“Chief Pavilion Lord of Wind Pavilion” Second Elder’s face become more sullen than before “What are you doing here, as a merchant this is not your place to interfere!”
“Normally, we don’t interfere in this kind of matter, but your disciples have killed several of our people, and that fact makes an exceptions this time” Xiang Tianya gave a cold statement with smile on his face.
Three factions are surrounding them, how can Jade Palace get out of this sticky situations?
Shi Xueyun has always kept a cold indifferent face in front of this situations that comes barreling in her footsteps. She can’t show any other emotions at the moment, all she has for her Jade Palace is unwavering bravery.
“Now I can give you two choices, the first one is to hand over all your quota and treasures or secondly, Palace Lord Shi is to marry me, otherwise Jade Palace will be obliterated today!” Qing Yuncheng looked at Shi Xueyun with greedy eyes, if he married a genius woman, their offspring will be if not the same more genius than their own mother.
When this demand has spoken, all the disciples of Jade Palace were truly shocked. This is not just a mere fight to get a shared quota and immediate increase in power, no, this is more than that!
“Marry a pig head like you? Are you joking? Do you think you can match her power? You are just an expired old shag, a weakling like you wanted to marry her?” The familiar voice came from outside the door, drawing everyone’s attention, and immediately a familiar figure appeared in front of them, and it was Yi Tianyun!
Yi Tianyun didn’t use his Hundred Transformation Mask. He wanted to use his own identity to defend his aunt, and Jade Palace. With the amount of things he heard from the outside, he can’t stop himself, from being enraged by the situations he comes in to. His aunt is not some object of power, but his aunt is a goddess in his eyes.
