The Great Evil Sword Technique (I)
In a lush green forest, a line of people walked slowly, supporting a luxurious carriage.
Inside was a rich looking young master, and beside the carriage was a white gowned old man with a white grizzled beard on a Purple Horned Beast.
The young master lifted the curtain, stood in front of the carriage and gazed ahead and asked: “Where else have we not gone to in the Jue Lian District?”
The old man took out a spotlessly fluorescent paper from his storage ring and swept over it.
“We have been to almost everywhere!”
“Almost? What’s the meaning of almost?” The young master frowned and asked.
The old man cupped his fists and said: “Young Master Lin is gifted, with deep cultivation. It’s hard to find difficult opponents even though you are sweeping across Jue Lian District. Even the Immortal Sword Sect cannot fight you. I believe that in the upcoming Mountain River List competition, you will definitely be able to rush into the top 10.”
“The top 10 is only a platform, to reach to a even high realm, the eyes cannot stop there!”
LIn Tian Yin said indifferently: “Also, Bai Yan Shan of Immortal Sword Sect did not challenge me. She is an extremely gifted girl, and have a indescribable fanaticism to the martial dao, her potential is not weaker than the people in the Mountain River List.”
“But she is not your opponent, even she knows that. If not why did she hide instead of challenging you?” The old man said.
“You cannot assume. Isn’t someone who knows himself clearly much scarier than someone who overestimates himself?”
The old man nodded, agreeing with Lin Tian Yin’s words.
“Right, we have not gone to the Su Family right?” Lin TIan Yin suddenly said.
“That’s right.” The old man nodded: “That is why I said almost, inside the entire Jue Lian District, only the Su Family has not been touched.”
“Then let us go there.”
“There is no reason to anymore.”
“The two most talented people in the Su Family are gone, Su Qing Er had deserted them, Prince Fu Su had went out to travel, so there are no more strong people in the Su Family. So even if we went, there is no one to challenge.:
“What about Su Yun?” Lin Tian Yin’s eyes had a tinge of burning passion in it, his expression becoming sinister when he asked.
“Su Yun?” The old man was startled, then said: “Are you talking about the Limitless Sword Lord? He had went to Blossom Heart Valley, then disappeared. Some people said he was killed by the Spirit Demon Dao of the Blossom Heart Valley by being too immersed in it!”
“Did anyone see his body?”
“Then who can declare whether he is dead or not?” Lin Tian Yin shook his head and said: “I really want to fight with him!”
“But his name was not mentioned in the candidate list of the Mountain River Sect, and furthermore, there are news that Limitless Sword Lord’s activities at “Wu Shuan Jue Peak” and the “Purple Star Academy”, was achieved because he holds a large quantity of strong treasures, his personal cultivation strength is not strong, and because of this, he was not chosen.”
“Is that so?”
Lin TIan Yin thought for a while, then shook his head: “Forget it, leave him be, so what if he truly relies on the treasures? The experts of Mountain River Sect are not what others think they are!”
The old man did not reply.
The carriage continued to move forward, and after a while, they left the forest.
“Young master, Where to next?”
“Mystical Mountain Range.”
The stone door closed.
Su Yun gasped as he dropped to the floor, doing his best to breathe, perspiration flowing down all over his face.
The stone lion was the same, all of it’s soul power was scared away, and it was doing its best to get them back.
When the stone lion fully recovered, it got up quickly and bellowed at Su Yun: “You… You son of a bitch how dare you lie to me about the Spirit Novice trashes, they… They were all in the higher stages of the Spirit Soul Realm!”
“What? I see!” Su Yun got up. Panting, he revealed a surprised look on his face as he heard the stone lion complaints.
“Don’t you act foolish with me!”
“No, I’m not. Really. They probably used some sort of pretense treasures and disguised themselves as spirit nove disciples and lied to me so that my guard would be down!”
“Really? You’re not lying to me?”
“Why would I lie to such a smart, talented and sharp soulstone spirit like you?”
“Hey, haven’t I heard of that before?”
The stone lion giggled.
Just then, another stone door rang. One after another, it would not stop ringing. Slowly, the thick stone door started to tremble.
Specks of dust fell from the roof. All sorts of array patterns glowed. That was the only array pattern that was protecting the structure of this grave.
“Is this door sturdy?” Su Yun asked quickly.
“When they built it initially, the door was hailed to be unbreakable for ten thousand years ! It is super strong! No matter how they attack, we can remain here. We’re safe.”
The stone lion replied.
Su Yun calmed down.
“That’s good to hear.”
“Stupid, what’s that to be good about?”
Just then, Ling Qing Yu flew out from the Sword Sheath and stood right infront of Su Yun.
“If they keep guarding at the entrance, how are you gonna leave? Are you going to stay here forever?”
Ling Qing Yu was frustrated as she continued: “If you want to die here, please remember to hide the Limitless Sword Sheath away. Don’t let the evil people take it or else they would definitely use it to cultivate.”
“Oh, so you’re worried about this!”
Su Yun was taken aback but soon enough, he smiled: “There’s always a way out. Qing Yu, don’t worry. We have ample time now. We can still think of other ways.”
After that, he turned and said to the stone lion: “I remember you telling me that there are a total of 8 entrances. So, where are the other seven entrances? Can you lead us there?”
The stone lion nodded and roared before he took the lead to bring them to the inner sections of the grave.
The inside of the grave was much bigger. It was made up of a circular piece of land and around this land there were several stone doors.
Previously, he obtained the Brilliant Rebirth Flower from this ground. It was initially still covered with arrays but now, the arrays were not in use for a long time and had already rotten and lost its ability.
“These 173 doors are a facade. Taking away 7 of these doors that would lead them out, there was one more door that would lead them to the master. The rest were death doors. Once they entered, they would die for sure!”
The stone lion mentioned as he brought them to door 37. He reached out with his clumsy paws and banged it on the door. Instantly, a miraculous energy formed at his paws.
“The ancestors of the Evil Sword Sect created this grave to perfection.” Su Yun gasped
Ling Qing Yu looked at him with a face of confusion: “What?”
“Look at the stone lion.” Su Yun pointed, and said: “You should know, it is a soul stone spirit right? The powerful part is here, it is a soul stone spirit, but its’ Soul Force is special. When the ancestor of the Evil Sword Sect imbued it with Soul Force, he made it special, and exclusive! The goal was, that he had made it into this tomb’s key!”
“Key? Su Yun, what are you talking about?”
“You still don’t understand? Regardless of whatever door we entered, they would still be the same! We will need to rely on the stone lion to lead us to activate it, so normal people cannot even enter, and the stone lion that guard the outside, if they had rushed to kill it and barge into the tomb, then they will definitely not be able to enter, because upon its’ death, this place is a sealed place, without the stone lion, they cannot enter the tomb.”
“Then how did the Sword Ancestor enter?”
“Should be the same as us.” Su Yun laughed bitterly: “This stone lion is a coward, after scaring it a bit, it will obey whoever.”
“Eh?” Just then, the stone lion suddenly sounded out: “Weird, this door cannot open.”
Su Yun was startled, and immediately ran over.
He saw the stone lion trying again and again to imbue the door with its Soul Force, but the door did not move an inch.
“It must be due to time, the seal for controlling the door had spoilt.” The stone lion sighed.
“You mean, we are stuck here?”
Ling Qing Yu asked.
“Something like that.” The stone lion laid on the ground and said nonchalantly.
Ling Qing Yu was now even more frustrated.
Su Yun thought and asked: “Can this door be broken?”
“Unless you’re an almighty being with a cultivation of at least the fifth stage of Spirit Star Realm, otherwise, you can forget about it.” The stone lion chuckled: “The power generated from a fifth stage Spirit Star Cultivator can then send this door crumbling to pieces. As for the others, it is definitely impossible!
With that, Su Yun turned depressed.
“Spirit Star Cultivator? If only I wasn’t a sword, I can create such a strong power. Sigh, is there no other ways?” Ling Qing Yu asked
The stone lion shook his huge head.
Silence filled the atmosphere.
Su Yun sat on the ground motionlessly as he pondered deep while Ling Qing Yu and the stone lion looked onto him weirdly.
Suddenly, he looked up and spoke: “Maybe we have one more way.”
“What is it?” Ling Qing Yu asked quickly.
Su Yun took out a red leather cover book from his storage ring and placed it on the ground.
Ling Qing Yu looked at him in bewilderment and inquired as her voice shook: “Please don’t tell me you want to learn this unique Evil Sword Technique?”
“This book basically recorded all sorts of Evil Sword Techniques. Its powers are beyond anyone’s imagination. But both its cultivation methods and application methods are too extreme. Although the risks are high, looking at our situation, we only have this choice!”
Su Yun clenched his fist tight.
“I can make use of this ultra strong unique Evil Sword Technique and find a way out!”
“Su Yun! I will advise that you better not cultivate it. We’re safe here for now. With your current level of cultivation, you can stay here for months. There is still time. We can think of other ways.”
Ling Qing Yu immediately shook her head and spoke in a serious tone.
“No, Qing Yu, you’re wrong.” Su Yun shook his head and said: “We do not have as much time as you think.”
“That door will be broken sooner or later! Since these door seals are broken, can’t that door break?”
“But this fellow said that the door is unbreakable for ten thousand years?”
“Then what about after ten thousand years?” Su Yun said, he glanced at the stone lion, seeing that it was not looking at him, he said: “Who knows how long this tomb have been built for, furthermore, what it said might not be true, since it is sooooo clever.” as he said that, he pointed at his own brain.
Naturally, Ling Qing Yu could tell it was a sarcasm. Still, she wanted to say something but Su Yun had already opened the pages of the red leathered book.
“This sword technique is built upon the normal Evil Sword Technique. I have already mastered the third move of the Evil Sword Technique, and my foundation is strong. I can cultivate this Evil Sword Technique quickly. Qing Yu, I need your cooperation! When I cultivate this technique and my Profound Spirit Qi is close to depletion, I hope you can nourish me with Qi so I can heal faster! Is that ok?”
“This…” Su Yun was already set. Ling Qing Yu could only agree with him. She nodded: “Alright.”
“Then, let’s start!”
Su Yun took a deep breath in and flipped open the first page of the book.
