Sword Palace’s Twin Swords
The date of promise regarding Su Yun’s challenge to Tu Bai Li had arrived. Tu Bai Li knew that the fight was just a cover for Su Yun, whose goal was just to learn the Evil Sword Technique. He was generous and did not conceal anything, while fighting, he would show off the moves of the Evil Sword Technique, and did not hold back.
Compared to Tu Bai Li, the evil cultivators in the martial ground training were considered ‘just taking a peep’ into the techniques. In the fight, Su Yun did not have the heart to win, but the heart to learn, and of course, his harvest was great, Tu Bai Li’s enlightenment on the Evil Sword Technique was not inferior to the instructor.
And for what Tu Bai Li is doing for him, Su Yun’s heart was filled with gratitude.
After the battle, Su Yun went back to his hut and stayed inside for three days.
Hun San went to the head instructor to express Su Yun’s wishes, that he wished to enter the secret palace to obtain the Sovereign King Sword, clear the void exit and leave the Evil Realm. To that, the instructor naturally did not object, since the Sovereign King Sword was something that was too unreal, that the people of the Evil Sword Sect only saw it in the history records, and if Su Yun wanted to try and obtain the unreal object, they had no reason to object.
No one knew exactly how powerful the Sovereign King Sword is, but rumours had it, that it possessed the power to cut through anything, and because of that, Hun San judged that it could fix the void exit.
After the fight, Su Yun did not have any reason to head back to the martial grounds, but it was not because he was giving up, but the Evil Realm people training there daily were training the same limited things, and going back there proved to be unhelpful, so, he had to depend on himself.
With the Everlasting Stone and Hu Qian Mei’s physique support, Su Yun’s cultivation speed was astonishing, and having the gift given to him by the Evil Emperor Xin Wu only helped him even further. With Ling Qing Yu’s guidance, he did not deviate into the wrong path, and in the few months of training, he actually managed to touch onto the third move of the Evil Sword Technique.
Su Yun did not expect to reach that stage, and it was truly surprising.
The mishap of using the void exit to leave the Evil Realm did not cause Su Yun to give up on it, and using Ling Qing Yu’s method of slashing the spatial void open to leave, although it was reliable, it was not safe, and to gather the materials that she needed, he was afraid that the journey would be even more dangerous. Since it was so, why not go search for the Sovereign King Sword in the Secret Palace.
With the three moves, I should be able to handle the Evil Souls inside the Secret Palace, right?
Su Yun thought.
On the northern part of the Sky Martial Continent
On a snowy mountain peak, a pure white beautiful woman stood at the side, gazing at the snow dancing along the wind, her eyes, like a gem, lightly closing.
The cold wind rustled through her black hair and white robes, looking exactly like a fairy, adding her beautiful face, she was like a character from a picture that came to life.
Slowly, the girl opened her eyes, and gazed out far.
In the distance was a gigantic spacious and empty flat plains, the plains had a gigantic phoenix sculpture erected in the middle of it, surrounding the sculpture was layers of ice crystal wave marks. Overlooking from the peak, it was a panoramic view of the sculpture and the surroundings, and the gaze was extraordinarily stunning.
The girl clenched her small fists, without making a sound.
“It’s almost two years already?”
Just then, a middle aged lady walked out and spoke from behind.
The girl turned her head to look, to see the middle aged woman dressed in purple robes walking over.
The lady had white hair as her sideburns, her forehead with some wrinkles. Even so, her figure was upright and was still attractive, her appearance still seemed young, and might even be hailed as one of the great beauties.
“It has been two years, and you’re still looking out daily, what’s wrong? Are you still not willing to give up? Is that person so important? Worth enough for you to wait and be in danger?”
The middle aged lady said gently, a sense of helplessness in her tone.
The girl rushed to her and bowed, and called out gently.
The middle aged lady nodded her head and said: “In Our Snow Jade Palace’s Ancestor’s burial grounds exists our ancestor spirit beast soul that defends the place, if you want to use it, you have to first win over the soul, that is the law of our Snow Jade Palace, and your current strength is obviously not the opponent of the spirit beast soul, so, wait for a while more.”
“Your disciple will train harder.” The girl said gently.
“You…” The middle aged woman helplessly shook her head: “You are already working very hard, you cannot be hasty with the matters of training, if not you will only be working with twice the effort for half the results.”
“Your disciple understands.”
“Oh yes, that’s right, Ming’er, just now there was a report, that you have already been chosen to be one of the top 100 participants of the Mountain River List, the competition will start in half a year time, and you will be representing our sect to participate. Our sect might not be a big sect, but to be able to produce a genius that’s in the Mountain River List, it truly is the honor of our sect. Never have our sect been chosen to be in the list, so I hope that you can grant your master’s wishes, enter the list, and do not disappoint the hopes our sect have placed upon you.”
The girl nodded her head and said indifferently: “Master’s favor for Ming’er is heavier than the mountains, and have used all her power to protect Ming’er, Ming’er will definitely repay Master, and achieve a name in the Mountain River List.”
“Good.” The middle aged woman nodded her head, and smiled: “Then I am at ease, alright, Ming’er, it is late, go back early and rest.”
Finished, she turned and left.
The girl’s watched quietly as her master left, turned her body and looked out towards the phoenix sculpture again.
“Wait for me, I will definitely find you, Young Master” Her hands clenched tightly, as she lightly mumbled the words that were full of resolution.
Two months later.
The junior disciples who have trained for two years, upon completion, would be able to apply for a promotion to the senior rank sect disciples.
The hierarchy of the Evil Sword Sect was differentiated simply, junior disciples, senior disciples (contains the Elites), higher ups (contains the clan elders), Sect Leader, just like that.
Li Guang and Li Xin had been disciples of the Evil Sword Sect for over 30 years, and were experts of the Evil Sword Technique, including Tu Bai Li, Ji Yan Yong and a few others, of course, if speaking about the duration where they have been in the sect, Li Guang and Li Xin had been in it far longer than Tu Bai Lai and the others, and the promotions were handled in batches, so Tu Bai Li and his generation could only wait for two years, and it was their year this time.
If successful, they would be promoted to be senior disciples, and can learn more in depth techniques of the Evil Sword Technique.
With Hun San’s contacts and Tu Bai Li’s orders, Su Yun managed to obtain the qualifications of attending the refinement classes, of course, the Evil Realm people did not really care about him, since he did not learn the Evil Sword Technique, and other than that, nothing could harm the Evil Souls inside the secret palace. As for the Sovereign King Blade? The majority of the Evil Realm people believed that it was unattainable, because the secret palace had been opened to the public for so long, yet no one could find it’s location, so how could Su Yun possibly find it?
Many People did not announce their anticipation, they figured it was a waste of time, but Su Yun did not give up.
Regardless of anything, he still had to test it out once.
And, five days before the refinement class was about to being, Ling Qing Yu brought shocking news to him from inside the Sword Sheath.
Su Yun did not dare to neglect it at all.
Inside the small hut, he urgently prepared protective measures, then quickly placed the Sword Sheath on the floor, activated it, and entered the Sword Sheath.
Light flashed past him, the surrounding space revolved around him, and in the next moment, it was as if he had entered a fairyland.
On the jaded platform.
Su Yun looked around, and realised he was not at the same place where he had been before, and started to be nervous.
In front, Ling Qing Yu stood there waiting, only to see her expression congealing, the blaze in her eyes could be seen from afar.
“Qing Yu, what you’re saying is true?”
Su Yun walked a few steps, and asked gravely.
“Why would I lie to you?” Lin Qing Yu extended a finger out, and pointed to
The sword palace was extremely majestic, being an unknown size, it took the form of a spider web, with the sword palace as the center, surrounding it were large passageways, every passage were filled with immortal swords, multi colored and beautiful, they all shone with brilliant colors.
“I am a Sword Spirit with a body, and can wander around the Sword Sheath’s world. Recently, I accidentally came across this place, and found a special twin swords.”
(TN: This 母剑 that she is talking about is not really twin swords, it is a special sword that looks like this http://jx3.178.com/s/pic.html?http://pic1.178.com/21/211068/month_1006/1276801206_211068_8be26c8a7539eaee7cc4Ui8Z05RvtqlL.jpg
I cannot find the name or what is it called except for bifurcated weapons, but it still isn’t the right name so I will stick to twin swords for now)
“Special Twin Swords? What’s so special other than being twins?”
“Of course there is.” Ling QIng Yu became serious: “The Limitless Sword Sheath is not as simple as you think it is, there are 18 thousand swords sealed within, and it was not only the Sword Ancestor that placed them in here. No matter how I explain it you will not understand, the reason I asked you to come in here today, is to ask you something.”
“What’s the matter?”
“Do you want to get the twin swords?”
“Twin swords?” Su Yun muttered, his eyes instantly blazing with passion: “How can I not want it? Why, Qing Yu, do you have a way for me to obtain the twin swords?”
A twin sword could dominate 1000 swords, it’s might was earth shattering and heaven breaking, where even the Evil Sword would have difficulty contending against, how could Su Yun not want it?
It was just that he was currently still too weak, to obtain the Twin Swords? That was simply suicide!
“You want the Twin Swords? It’ll be difficult, but as long as there is the opportunity to, you can get it!”
Ling Qing Yu pointed to the large sword palace, and said: “Do you see that sword palace? I cannot feel the Qi of the twin swords inside it, which means, the twin swords is not inside the Sword Palace.”
“What does that mean?”
“Stupid.” Ling QIng Yu rolled her eyes, and said: “That means, for some reason, the twin swords had landed somewhere within the surrounding swords.”
To land somewhere amongst the swords outside caused Su Yun’s breathing to halt, he finally understood what Ling Qing Yu meant: “You want me to find the Twin Swords and then subdue it?”
“That is very difficult! Even if it was not in the sword palace, it’s a Twin Sword, how can I subdue it? Furthermore, how can I even find it?”
“If it’s other people, they don’t have the chance, but if it’s you, as long as you can find it, you can actually hold your own against it!”
“Because, you have a special sword!” Ling Qing Yu said.
Su Yun was startled, then thought about it and said: “Death Sword?”
“The Evil Sword Technique is the only way you can fight against the Twin Swords!” Ling Qing Yu’s expression became extremely solemn and said earnestly: “Su Yun, I predict that the reason that the Twin Swords left the sword palace, is because there is a possibility that one of the sword is changing into a primal sword, the twin swords leaving the sword palace means it is being suppressed, and that is a rare chance, for a sub sword to become a Primal sword happens once every a 100 years, if you do not grab this chance, when the Twin Sword returns back to the sword palace, you will never ever have such a good chance again.”
(TN: I am not clear on how the sword actually transforms or why the twin sword have to leave the sword palace, maybe it is bestowing a sword to become a primal sword. Primal sword would be a sword that can control other swords like the death sword and is not a special class sword)
Su Yun nodded his head, and said solemnly: “Let’s try it.”
“But you have to be very careful, the Death Sword is an Evil Sword, as long as it enters the sword sheath, you must definitely control it! If not it’ll be trouble.” Saying that, Ling Qing Yu’s face showed a trace of worry.
But, Su Yun shook his head and laughed: “Don’t worry about that, the current Death Sword is different from the past.”
