Why would I Lie to You
Ever since Lin Tian Yin from the Mountain River List came to challenge, and consecutively defeated Immortal Sword Sect’s most talented Wang Hao and Zhang Kai Feng. Immortal Sword Sect’s position in Jue Lian District had plummeted. Wang Hao and Zhang Kai Feng had signed an agreement, with promises to help Lin Tian Yin, in which he had not stated the matter yet, but this had already negatively impacted Immortal Sword Sect greatly.
Especially with Long Xian Li’s depression, this made people not see any hope, as out of the few clan elders, Long Xian Li was currently the strongest, and she represented a majority of the power.
But no one knew what Long Xian Li was thinking.
At the same time, inside the Secret Palace of the Evil Realm.
A dark black figure was quickly making his way through the tunnels, heading out.
“I remember, after this bend I will be able to see the entrance of the Secret Palace.”
Su Yun’s face exposed joy, and his speed quickened.
Although he did not find the Sovereign King Sword, he had obtained the elder’s notebook as well as coordinates to materials that he could use, so it was not a trip that was wasted.
“After exiting the Secret Palace,, leave the Evil Sword Sect. You’re now at the second stage of the Spirit Soul Realm, you can now find the materials and have the resources to do it, so if you meet any powerful Evil Realm people, at least you can protect yourself.”
Ling Qing Yu who was in the Sword Sheath spoke.
Su Yun nodded, a blazing passion sweeping past his eyes.
The Evil Realm was dark and dirty, and he longed to leave the place.
After turning on the bend, he reached a long staircase. Su Yun quickly rushed up, and continued to advance forward, until he saw the entrance of the Secret Palace.
At that moment, the big door opened, and light shone through the gap. Su Yun became excited and ran out.
The scene before him surprised him.
There were many Evil Realm people standing there.
The junior disciples of Evil Sword Sect, the senior disciples as well as a few higher ups.
The clan elders, elite disciples and disciples were all gathered together, a few Spirit Soul Cultivators and even a Spirit Star Cultivator had appeared.
“Su Yun is out!!”
“Finally he is out, heh, this despicable creature!”
There were many rumblings in the surroundings.
“What’s this about? Welcoming me?”
Su Yun felt something amiss, his expression taut and he asked.
“That’s right, we are here to welcome you.”
Li Guang who was at the front sneered, behind him, a group of Evil Realm people were stuck inside an Evil Array, they could not leave the array, and could not even speak. They were Li Xin and her group.
Seeing Li Xin’s anxious and guilty expression, Su Yun immediately understood what was going on.
Tu Bai Li was also on scene, but he had a helpless expression, and obviously the occurrence was already out of his control.
“You, from the Black Evil Cave Mansion!”
Just then, the Spirit Star Cultivator spoke out.
He was the law enforcement clan elder of Evil Sword Sect, and represented the highest military power of the Evil Sword Sect.
Seeing his 3m tall figure, dressed in a black gown, his body seemed to float closer like a ghost and stood in front of the group. He looked at Su Yun, and said: “My Evil Sword Sect treated you well, why did you steal our Evil Sword Sect’s technique? What is your goal?”
“I have no goal, the matter of me sneaking to learn was indeed Su Yun’s wrong, and I admit my mistake!” Su Yun said.
“Good!” The law enforcement clan elder nodded, and said: “Then, according to my Evil Sword Sect laws, I now have to take our Soul, peel your skin and dig your bone, and use you to create a weapon for my Evil Sword Sect, do you have any objections?”
Hearing that, Su Yun’s eyes became big: “How can I not have any complaints? Is it not enough to rid me of my Evil Sword Technique?”
“Humph, you think it’s so easy?”
The law enforcement clan Elder said coldly, then he waved his hand. Following his signal, the large quantity of Evil Realm people rushed towards Su Yun.
Su Yun’s eyes congealed, and he anxiously retreated.
“Su Yun, quickly enter the Secret Palace to escape!”
Ling Qing Yu urgently called out.
Everything that had happened was not done with much thought.
Su Yun abruptly turned his body and rushed into the secret palace.
“Capture him!” The Law enforcement Clan Elder said solemnly.
“Don’t even think of escaping Su Yun!!”
A group of Evil Sword Sect experts brandished their Evil Swords and chased after him.
An uproar immediately came out of the Secret Palace, countless Evil Souls all flew out, the Evil Qi leaking all over.
Seeing Su Yun running inside the Secret Palace with all his might, Ling Qing Yu felt helpless.
“If you didn’t save that group of Evil Realm people then, wouldn’t it be better? See what trouble you’re in now? The Evil Realm people will not be grateful about you saving them! When they have to kill, they will not be merciful.”
“That’s why, I’m a human and not a Devil nor Evil.” Su Yun panted as he ran and said: “This is where I’m different from them. I, Su Yun, might not be a righteous person. Yes, sometimes I can be downright scheming to learn other people’s techniques or even use low lying methods to get what I want but I won’t give up on any hope. The Evil Sword Sect has treated me well. If I still keep my hands off during that critical moment, would I still be Su Yun?”
“You…” Ling Qing Yu was speechless. She sighed continuously: “Such an idiot.”
“Hahaha, if I’m not an idiot why would I carry out a series of stupid things?”
Su Yun laughed but he felt relieved. There were things that he would never regret.
Either in his past life, or in his present life, he had never given up on Demonic Continent or Sky martial continent.
“Su Yun! Quick, tie him up and capture him!”
The experts from Evil Sword Sect were catching up. One of the experts made a move and turned into a ball of smoke and charged at Su Yun quickly.
Immediately, Su Yun drew his Death Sword and sixty over other swords and applied the Evil Sword Technique. Countless swords circled around him quickly and formed a layer of thick, fierce, sword shadow Qi. Amongst the Evil Qi emerged several Evil Spirits. They danced as they opened their mouths and attacked aimlessly. As the Evil Sword Sect’s experts arrived, their face took a change and their hearts skipped a beat. None of them dared to come close, else they would definitely be torn apart should they come one bit closer.
“This is Evil Sword Technique?”
A few of the experts felt a chill down their spines.
They did not know this was a combination of the Limitless Sword maneuvering Technique and Evil Sword Technique.
“They have distanced themselves.” Ling Qing Yu heaved a breath of relief as she witnessed the unfolding of the situation but she still looked worried: “So, where are you going to run to? Now, the entrance must be sealed by the Evil Sword Sect. If you escape into the Secret Palace, you’ll probably be in grave danger! Who knows what kind of horrible things could happen in the Secret Palace?”
“If the stone lion was not wrong, then this Secret Palace was actually a tomb for an old friend constructed by the ancestor of the Evil Sword Sect, and there might not be any more scary things deeper in.” Su Yun gasped.
“That’s worse, they can go wherever you go! You cannot run inside the Secret Palace for eternity! You need to find a place to hide, and avoid them for the time being, all of them chasing you are all above the fifth stage of the Spirit Soul Realm, you definitely cannot fight with them head on!”
Su Yun thought for a while, then said: “I can hide in a place!”
Ling Qing Yu was startled: “What place?”
Su Yun did not reply, his pace got faster, he sprinted forward, and reaching the fork, he turned right, and entered the vast hall that had the sarcophagus located inside, running into the dilapidated sarcophagus and rushed into the stone room.
“He went there!”
“Quick!! Go and catch him!!”
Countless figures ran into the vast hall.
Su Yun entered the stone hall, scaring the stone lion, causing it to jump down the platform, its entire body trembling from head to toe.
“You… You… Why are you back again?”
“Less talking! Quickly open the door and let me in!!”
“Wa oh, ok! ok!!”
The stone lion immediately activated its techniques, and opened the big door behind that it was protecting.
Su Yun anxiously ran in.
“Guard the door, don’t let the people behind come in.”
“What kind of people are there behind? Are they powerful?”
“Not powerful, they are all trash around the Spirit Novice Realm, because of some special Treasure that they have, it caused their Qi to become strong, so you cannot see through their cultivation.”
“Quit lying, if they are trash, why are you running?”
“I have some urgent matters that I need to enter this grave! I can’t be bothered to entertain them.”
“Is that so?” The stone lion was suspicious.
“You’re such a smart, talented, and sharp Soul Stone spirit. Why would I lie to you?”
“Yeah, that’s right!”
Afterwhich, the stone door closed.
The stone lion revealed a bitter smile before he extended and turned his head to the stairs in front of it.
Very quickly, the experts from the evil sword sect purged through.
The stone lion roared instantly. The experts stopped in their footsteps the moment they heard the roars as they stared at the lion in shock.
“What is this?”
One of the experts asked carefully with an Evil Sword in his hand.
“I’m not sure but please be careful!”
They stood in the middle of the stairs. No one dared to descend for they could not tell the stone lion was merely a first level Spirit Soul Cultivator.
Several of the Evil Sword Sect people only assumed there were Evil Spirits in the Secret Palace. They never thought such odd objects would exist.
“Who are you people?”
The stone lion saw that it had scared this group of people and right away, it believed Su Yun’s words.
“We’re from Evil Sword Sect! Who are you? Why are you here? Did you see a man in a black cape passed by this place?”
“Tsk! So what if I’ve seen him?’
The stone lion said arrogantly: “He has already entered my master’s final resting place! What? Are you thinking of seizing him? Just based on you lousy, Spirit Disciples? You have to pass through me first!”
Having said that, the stone lion was starting to freak out: Were this group of people really after this man? He could see how great and powerful this man was, why would he be afraid of these bunch of lousy, spirit disciples?
Then, once the stone lion completed his sentence, the opponent started analyzing.
“This stone lion should be a first stage Spirit Soul realm existence right?”
“That’s right, it seems to be just a Soul Stone Spirit.”
“It should have some intellect right, why would it dare to speak such audacious words?”
“Maybe its brain is not functioning right.”
“Brain? It does seem slightly disabled”
“Hearing its words, Su Yun must be inside the stone door, don’t let him escape, we need to quickly take action!”
A few Evil Realm people after exchanging words, they finished their discussion and one by one went down the stairs, walking towards the stone lion with their Evil Swords in hand.
“Hey! What audacity! You dare to advance? Are you not afraid I will eat all of you?”
The stone lion roared towards the Evil Realm people, releasing its might.
However, the Evil Realm people were not afraid, and slowly walked towards it.
The stone lion felt that something was wrong, and slowly retreated backwards, its stone face anxiously looking at the people.
The Stone lion stopped holding back, and instantly opened its back mouth, spitting out a grey light, striking towards the Evil Realm people.
But a few sword images flashed.
The grey light dissipated, and not a bit landed on the Evil Realm people.
The stone lion was stunned.
“Seems like it truly is a first stage Spirit Soul Realm animal.”
One of them sneered.
“Kill it, then go in and seize Su Yun!”
A few of them nodded and were ready to advance.
“Open the door!”
Then, Su Yun’s voice emerged from behind the door.
The stone lion’s heart dropped. Quickly, he cast a spell to open the door.
A crack surfaced on the stone door. Then, a bright, radiance shot out from this crack and engulfed this group of evil people with an icy cold Evil Qi. Amidst the Evil Qi were countless ferocious, savage Evil Spirits!
Su Yun’s special Evil Sword Technique!
The evil people noticed and avoided it anxiously.
But the Evil Swords circled around these people and forced them to disperse and retreat back into the stone door.
His speed was so fast that there were no signs of it!
The stone door closed up, but the stone lion had disappeared, it rushed into the stone door, and disappeared.
