Great Evil Sword Technique (II)
Mystical techniques were not immutable. Any level of mystical technique were based on the usage of Profound Spirit Qi. Synergistically, they released strong powers.
A low level mystical technique could be easily used with Profound Spirit Qi whereas a higher level mystical technique, not only was it complicated to use the Profound Spirit Qi, there would also be collision amongst the Profound Spirit Qi themselves. There might even be a change in the structure of Profound Spirit Qi which could result in an indiscernible strength.
A mighty mystical technique could teach a person to maximise all his Profound Spirit Qi to move the mountains and split open the earth such that the person could master everything at the tip of his fingers. Usually, these mystical techniques were desired by many.
Of course, high level mystical techniques required high cultivation to learn or else the person would not have enough Profound Spirit Qi. Without sufficient Profound Spirit Qi, he would not be able to complete each and every single move required, needless to say, he would not be able to activate the mystical technique.
Su Yun did not know what level this mystical Evil Sword Technique was exactly, but the amount of Profound Spirit Qi it needed was comparable to his. But it focused a lot on sustainability. With Su Yun’s current cultivation, he could only sustained for a few breaths.
Su Yun had already mastered the first few foundation techniques of the Evil Sword Technique but this mystical Evil Sword Technique was much more profound than the ordinary Evil Sword Technique. Of course, it was also much more dangerous.
For example, usually, Qi would pass through the main meridian of the San Tong meridians. This would not result in a great effect on the body but with the special, mystical Evil Sword Technique, when the Qi passed through the San Tong meridians, the Qi would force all energy out and would release all of its strength to its maximum.
But this method had great risks because once the Qi became unstable, the channels were prone to rupture. As a result, the Qi in his body would be chaotic. His channels might get crushed as his cultivation level took a great fall. In the worst case scenario, he might die.
Su Yun noticed ‘Great Evil’ was the most simplified word and so he named it the ‘Great Evil Sword Technique’.
The Great Evil Sword Technique was a highway to hell. There was not a need to dwell on its power. To master this technique was basically letting him walk on a steel rod. Once he misplaced his foot, he would be a goner.
Carefully, he followed all the steps described in the ‘Great Evil Sword Technique’ and moved his Evil Spirit Qi. He did not move any of the other Qi. After All, this ‘Great Evil Sword Technique’ only asked for the usage of Evil Spirit Qi.
Very quickly, he depleted all of his Evil Spirit Qi.
Su Yun poured all of his other Qi’s into his Evil Spirit Essence quickly to help it develop more Evil Spirit Qi but it was temporary. Cultivation was done with Qi. In a blink of an eye, Su Yun’s body was like the sahara desert; barren and dried up. Ling Qing Yu noticed and reached out her fair little hand and placed it lightly on Su Yun’s back to nourish him with all of her strength.
Soon enough, Ling Qing Yu started to look pale. When Su Yun regained a new strength, Ling Qing Yu was an empty vessel. She did not have much strength left.
Su Yun continued to cultivate as Ling Qing Yu sat to recuperate and regain her Qi to accumulate for Su Yun.
Yet, this was still not enough. Time was running out. Su Yun had to master the most extreme attack in such a short period of time to actually find a way out.
Su Yun shouted.
“What stone lion? That’s horrible. I have a name too! I’m called Shi Er! Amongst the eight lions that are guarding this grave, I’m the second one!” The stone lion refuted.
“Don’t bullshit. Quick, give me all of your Profound Spirit Qi in your body!”
Shi Er was just about to reject but it saw Ling Qing Yu knocking on Su Yun’s sword sheath. Immediately, it shut its mouth obediently.
It walked over to Su Yun’s back and sighed. Then, he kneeled down and reached out his huge, furry paw and placed it on Su Yun’s back.
Shi Er was a first stage Spirit Soul Cultivator. With this Spirit Soul Power flourishing within Su Yun’s body, he regained much Qi.
When Shi Er was shrivelled up, it ran over to a side to cultivate. Not long later, Ling Qing Yu squeezed out all of her strength and gave it to Su Yun.
The lion and Qing Yu took turns to nourish Su Yun’s body with strength. Like a huge organising machine, Su Yun kept sorting out the strength they had provided him with. With that and the Everlasting Stone, Hu Qian Mei’s talents and the Evil Emperor Xin Wu’s talents, Su Yun was learning the ‘Great Evil Sword Technique’ at a rapid pace.
Time ticked by.
Dong! Dong! dong!
A dull alarm rang from outside. They could tell the evil people had not stopped one bit as they struck the stone door again and again. Several Evil Sword Sect people had gathered around the grave to observe as they watched the stone door get attacked.
The Law Enforcement Clan Elder led a group of elite disciples over. Behind them were Li Guang, Li Xin and Tu Bai Li.
“Why is there such a place here?”
Some of them whispered.
“The Secret Palace is very mysterious. We haven’t been here that many times so obviously we wouldn’t know.”
“Do you think the clan elders know about this?”
“The majority should know.”
The discussion was extremely soft. When the Law Enforcement Clan Elder came over, they stopped their discussion right away.
The Law Enforcement Clan Elder shot a glance at them before he asked the evil people who were knocking onto the stone door: “Where is the stone lion that was guarding this entrance?”
“Report clan elder, when we were here, it had escaped, running inside with Su Yun.”
“Escaped?” The Law Enforcement Clan Elder was slightly shocked. But quickly, he regained his expression.
“Never mind, just continue to attack this stone door. Although the materials and structure of the door is strong, but it not indestructible. Su Yun had stolen our Evil Sword Sect’s techniques. This is intolerable. We have to capture him quick and hand him over to the sect!”
“Li Xin!” Law Enforcement Clan Elder shouted.
Li Xin trembled as she scurried over. Cupping her fist: “Disciple is here.”
“Do you know what a grave offense have you made?”
The Law Enforcement Clan Elder asked blandly.
Li Xin and the others walked over and knelt right in front of Law Enforcement Clan Elder with their heads hung low: “Li Xin knows. Li Xin is willing to accept all sorts of punishments.”
“Tell me the reason!” the Law Enforcement Clan Elder bellowed.
Li Xin hesitated before she told them about how Su Yun saved them.
“I see.” the Law Enforcement Clan Elder nodded: “Did Su Yun use the Evil Sword Techniques he had learnt secretly to save you? If that’s the case, then he’s considered good.”
“Please show mercy, Law Enforcement Clan Elder! Don’t execute Su Yun!” Li Xin pleaded.
After all, Su Yun was their benefactor. How could she watch him die helplessly?
“I’m the Law Enforcement Clan Elder. Though Su Yun was exposed because of you but I can’t show mercy on him. He did in fact, learn our Evil Sword Technique without permission. To protect the law, I have to punish him heavily. Li Xin, I shan’t pursue the mistakes you’ve made! As for the others,continue to smash the stone door till it breaks open!”
“Yes! Clan Elder!”
The evil people shouted in unison.
The stone door was being struck repeatedly. Li Xin was desperate. She sighed continuously as she looked at the stone door.
However, this stone door was ultimately set up by the ancestors of the Evil Sword Sect. Why would it break so easily? But the Law Enforcement Clan Elder did not worry either. The Secret Palace was the Evil Sword Sect’s territory. If he could not break it in a day, he would continue it for a second day, if still it was not possible, he would hit it for the third day. He just had to rotate the people until the door was broken.
Not only that, he had sent several experts to look for other entrances. It seemed like he knew this place like his fingertips. After he had found the other entrances, together with the help of the stone lion, he managed to enter the grave. However, he was disappointed to see all the facade doors were broken. There was no way he could activate them.
The Evil Sword Sect racked their brains to enter the grave with a burning passion to capture Su Yun.
Time was passing by.
In the grave, a man danced with his sword ferociously.
Large black Evil Qi tinted with red rippled through and filled up the entire chamber in the grave. Ling Qing Yu who was standing one side looked upon the man with her pale face. The stone lion had long curled up in a corner. It shook at the sight of this sword silhouette.
“This is so scary! It is as though once this Sword Qi comes in contact with you, your body would be torn apart! How dare you cultivate such a sword technique?”
The stone lion trembled as he asked.
“This is practically a sword technique that makes you lose everything. He had no other defenses. All of his Profound Spirit Qi was used on this attack, leaving none for the protection of the body. Is this sword technique really suitable for battle?”
Ling Qing Yu was baffled.
A dull whistle of the sword stopped as the black Death Sword halted
Hooking onto the sword, Su Yun stabbed it into the ground as he panted heavily. Pearls of sweat trickled down his forehead.
“How many days has it been?”
Su Yun wiped his sweat and placed the sword down. Meditating, he asked.
“About a month.”
Ling Qing Yu replied softly.
In this month, Su Yun did not rest for one bit. Neither did she. She was looking so pale as she continuously gave all her strength to Su Yun. There was not much left. It was same for the stone lion. The two were like a rechargeable batteries. When they were slightly charged up, they had to give it all out.
But that was also precisely the reason Su Yun could master and cultivate this Great Evil Sword Technique so quickly.
“‘The Great Evil Sword Technique is built up from the Evil Sword Technique. Because I have cultivated the first three moves of the Evil Sword Technique, the first three techniques in the Great Evil Sword Techniques are also the easiest to learn. The next four moves can’t be rushed. After all, the risks are high. Once it is rushed, and an accident occurred, there would be loss!”
Su Yun looked at the constant knocking door and saw that cracks had formed around the door. He knew for himself the door would not last long and so he said: “We have to start preparing to leave!”
The stone lion looked at him in bewilderment: “You think that because you’ve learnt this technique, that you can fight your way out against those fifth stage Spirit Star Cultivators? Are you crazy!”
Su Yun could not be bothered to explain himself. He continued: “Qing Yu, look at the door. It can probably last for about another 7-8 days. Use the next two days to recover! Make yourself in an optimal condition. Shi Er, you too, make full use of the time to recover. I still need to use your strength!”
Shi Er dared not refute Su Yun. He listened obediently.
Ling Qing Yu did not know what Su Yun was going to do, but the sword technique was astonishing. It did shock her.
Let’s see what this Su Yun has up his sleeves.
Ling Qing Yu thought as she meditated.
