Just when Su Yun was staring at the lady, she also turned her head and noticed him.
“Is there anything wrong?”
She smiled and asked.
“Nothing.” Su Yun quickly swept across the lady, he did not know who she was, and started to create nonsense: “Although Young miss is wearing a mask, I can sense that you are very artistic, and must definitely be a deity-like person. If it is convenient for young miss, are you able to take down your mask, and let this one have a glimpse of your beautiful face?”
“Take down my mask? Heh, why not you take down your mask? Furthermore, who are you to look at my face?”
The lady’s words were arrogant and filled with disdain, as she chuckled.
Su Yun: “…”
She retracted her gaze and continued walking.
Seeing her back view, Su Yun was still puzzled.
The lady’s figure stopped, her gaze turning elsewhere.
Su Yun was stunned, following her gaze, it landed on a person not far away.
It was the lady who sent someone previously to probe out Su Yun’s strength.
A strange light aura flashed past the masked lady, her thin lips forming a slight smile, her tongue licking them, then she stepped forward towards the female spirit cultivator, and started to talk to her.
The female spirit cultivator suddenly felt an uncomfortable feeling with the stranger, and immediately called for the group of men to surround the masked lady.
Who knew what the masked lady said something, the female spirit cultivator’s cautious expression relaxed, and slowly, the two groups started to chat, and there even some laughter.
Seeing that, Su Yun lowered his head and started to ponder.
After a moment, he turned and left, heading back to his cave.
“Brother Wu Yun!”
Upon entering the cave, Hong Yan’s voice suddenly sounded out. Seeing Su Yun walking in, she immediately welcomed him in.
“Hong Yan!” Su Yun nodded his head.
Hong Yan looked at Su Yun from head to toe once, then chuckled: “Did Brother Wu Yun go out to meet enemies?”
“Enemies?” Su Yun was startled.
“Yea, enemies.” Hong Yan laughed: “Qin Creek has all the geniuses and talents from all around the world gathered here, how can someone be able to meet friends so coincidentally? Or did Brother Wu Yun really venture out to meet his friends?”
“No no.” Su Yun laughed and shook his head: “I went out to walk around.”
“Oh, then brother Wu Yun, let us talk at night! I am going to find my friend, I heard she is also preparing to participate in the competition, I am not sure if she is here already or not, we have not met for many years, I wonder how she is now!”
“Alright, go on.”
Hong Yan nodded, then left.
With Hong Yan gone, Su Yun had nothing to do, so he sat down and started to meditate cross legged.
He was currently a sixth stage Spirit Soul cultivator, and the competition was ultimately between young talents. Although it was directed to the entire continent, there were many tyrant bullies. Many of them appeared like flies, all using treasures, but their cultivation were all limited. 30 years of time, no matter how talented they are, no matter how strong their aptitudes were, it should not be possible for them to reach the Spirit Star Realm right?
With his large number of treasures, and his cultivation reaching the sixth stage of the Spirit Soul Realm, it was enough to crush the competition.
Su Yun thought.
After thinking it through, he focused on meditating. The Spirit Essences in his body releasing Qi slowly flowing through his Qi channels, gradually permeating his entire body.
Hong Yan left the cave to find her friend. After chatting for awhile, they both said their goodbyes, but, Hong Yan felt worried while returning, and in the end she did not return to her own cave, but went to find Wang Zhong Shan and the rest.
Coincidentally, Luo Xiao Miao, Li Qing and the rest were there, all of them huddled together and talking.
“Hong Yan!” Upon seeing her, Wang Zhong Shan laughed: “You’re here? Where’s brother Wu Yun?”
“H-he is currently cultivating.” Hong Yan who was filled with worry smiled.
“Brother Wu Yun is so strong, is because of his hard work, we should learn from him.” Wang Zhong Shan praised.
“That’s right.” Luo Xiao Miao stopped for a moment, then said: “But talking about it, Brother Wu Yun is slightly weird too.”
“Weird? Why is he weird?”
“Is it not weird? He is an Immortal Sword Sect disciple, it is fine that he is not travelling with them, but here, he did not even connect with them at all, instead he continued to stay with us. Is that not weird, is he truly a disciple of the Immortal Sword Sect?”
With that, Wang Zhong Shan and the rest all frowned.
“If he is not a disciple from Immortal Sword Sect, then why would he know the Imperial Sword Technique” Li Qing asked.
They both looked at Wang Zhong Shan, obviously, they already had their suspicions.
“What does it have to do with you if other people are from the Immortal Sword Sect or not?” Just at this time, Hong Yan berated.
Everyone were startled.
Hong Yan placed her hands on her hips, and snorted: “Maybe Brother Wu Yun have some conflict with them, that’s why they are not together! Brother Wu Yun is not a bad person, if not why did he save all of you? I never thought that after he saved all of us, you would all still talk behind his back, you all are really shameless!”
“Nono it is not like that, I am just really curious, just slightly curious” Luo Xiao Miao and the rest waved their hands, their heads perspiring.
“You are not allowed to talk about brother Wu Yun behind his back anymore! No matter who he is, he will not hurt all of you, that’s all!”
Hong Yan fumed and turned to leave.
Although she was also suspicious, she was willing to bury the suspicion in her heart.
Returning to the cave, she saw that Su Yun was still meditating, but his entire body was releasing seven different colors of light aura, it was extremely mystical, looking like a celestial being in Nirvana.
“What Qi is that?”
Hong Yan’s eyes became wide, she stood in front of Su Yun, carefully looking at the brilliant halos on his body, it was inconceivable, she anxiously closed her eyes to carefully feel the Qi, only to feel that inside the Qi was a complicated mix of ‘Swift Wind, Spirit Lord, True Divine, Scarlet Star and Wild Blade’ Spirit Qis, and other than these, there were two other different types of Qi. “W-what is this?”
Hong Yan suddenly opened her eyes, she watched the scene in shock.
She then watched as the light halos gradually dimmed down, Su Yun raised his hands above the Tian Ling Gai point (A meridian point at the top of the skull), then gradually dropped down,
A stream of Qi flowing around his fingers.
Su Yun exhaled, then opened his eyes and saw Hong Yan in front of him.
“Oh nothing, Brother Wu Yung, w-what attribute is your Profound Spirit Qi?”
“Why do you ask that?”
“Because when you were training, you were leaking halos of many different attributes, are those your Profound Spirit Qi?”
Hearing that, Su Yun hesitated for a second, then said: “No, it is just the Qi released by a treasure of mine.”
“Oh” Hong Yan nodded her head.
Suddenly, a loud sound rang outside their cave. The cave trembled for a moment, before shouts that seemed to be coming from angry people was heard.
“The people inside, get out! Quickly get your ass out!”
“Get your ass out! Or we will fight our way in!”
The angry shouts did not stop, it was very annoying and ear piercing.
Su Yun and Hong Yan looked at each other in suspicion, and went out of their cave.
Outside the cave was a large group of spirit cultivators, all of them wielding their weapons and shouting. Upon seeing the two of them coming out, they immediately surrounded them, blocking all routes of escape.
There were about 20 people, and the leader was a young man with a goatee.
Su Yun frowned, looking at the people around him, he asked: “Who are you? What are you all doing here?”
The young man then brought a scrawny spirit cultivator, after asking in a soft voice, the scrawny spirit cultivator looked at Su Yun and nodded his head.
Seeing that, anger condensed in the young man’s eyes, and his gaze returned back to Su Yun, and patted his chest and shouted: “My name is Liu Zheng! All these people are my brothers who have followed me from Hua Hai Region to participate in the competition! I have brought them here, to seek justice from you!”
The young man shouted in anger, then he raised his head, and the people behind him immediately spread out, revealing an ashen faced, dying lady being supported over.
Seeing her, Su Yun was startled.
She was the young lady that wanted to probe his strength.
Her clothings were messy, she seemed to be in a trance, half asleep and half awake, her entire head was perspiring, as though she was in deep pain.
“Someone said they last saw her with you, and now she had become like that. Tell me, was it you who did this?”
“See me with her?” Su Yun frowned, he then understood what had happened.
The lady had met with a mishap and become like that, her companion became enraged, and wanted to seek justice for her, and coincidentally someone saw me with her, and thus placed the blame on me.
But wasn’t she with the lady wearing the mask at the end? Why did it land on my head? I remember there were so many people still with her!
“Hey, Brother Wu Yun was always inside the cave training, since when was he with her? Don’t spout nonsense! You need proof, if you don’t have proof, don’t talk nonsense!”
Hong Yan stood up and shouted.
“Proof? My people here are proof, they said they saw it, means they did! For Ruo Lan to become like that, it definitely must be him!”
Liu Zheng said angrily.
“She was not with me at the end, but with some lady wearing a mask, if you want to find the culprit, you better go and investigate her, and not me.” Su Yun said indifferently.
“What masked woman? Where is she?”
“I do not know.”
“Qi! Don’t you divert our line of sight, I do not care much, you better give us an explanation today, if not this thing will not remain like this.”
“Give you an explanation?” Su Yun folded his arms: “For what? I did not do it, why find me to take responsibility? If I do not give you an explanation, what can you do? Kill me? Do you dare to do it here? Or go report to the protectors? That’s even better, without evidence, I do not believe you can slander me!”
Liu Zheng was fuming with rage, to the point he could not refute.
In the end, he gave up and said angrily: “Kid, you better not let me meet you in the competition, if not I will definitely kill you! Wait and see!”
Finished, he turned and shouted: “Go!”
The group of people all left, bringing along their anger.
“Sheesh. What kind of people are they, to come and slander others without proof, really.” Hong Yan scoffed.
Su Yun scratched his chin, as though he was thinking about something, Hong Yan turned to look at him: “Brother Wu Yun, don’t worry, with your strength, you don’t have to worry about them.”
“I am not worried about them, but I am thinking about that woman called Ruo Lan.”
“Why? She should not be dead right?”
“She is not dead, but her Qi and vitality was sucked out, and is not far from dying.” Su Yun shook his head.
“W-what what what? Her Qi and vitality was drained? W-was she a subject used for cultivation?” Hong Yan’s face turned white, and she muttered.
“Subject used for cultivation?” Su Yun shook his head, and then a ruthless look swept past his eyes: “I think it is.”
Just then, a melodious chime spread across the entire valley area.
Hearing that, Hong Yan’s face changed: “Brother, the drawing of lots have begun!!”
“Drawing of lots?”
