Evil Sword Sovereign King (V)
The scene of Bai Feng Ye’s entrance intensified the Mountain River List competition.
Su Yun did not distance himself from those lies and slanders and knows that when he leaves the Sacred Palace, there would be further troubles, but at the moment, he did not care about anything else.
He turned over and walked out of the domain, but did not return to his seat. Instead, he headed towards the lady from Snow Jade Palace.
She was emotional, nibbling on her lips, her eyes revealing teardrops.
“Miss Ming’er, what happened to you?” Lu Xi Shan who was beside her asked in confusion.
Su Yun had already walked over, and was standing in front of her?
“Qing’er?” He asked gently.
But in the next second, she had already jumped into his embrace.
“Young Master! Is it you? Is it truly you? You’re not dead? That’s good! That’s good! Young master! Wuuuuuu”
(TN: I don’t know how to write crying sounds lol….)
Su Qing’er had rushed into Su Yun’s embrace, sobbing softly, her shoulders continuously shaking, she was broken hearted.
“Young Master, where did you go? Can you not throw Qing’er away anymore? If you do that again, Qing’er would rather die! Please do not dump me anymore. Promise me…. Wuuuu wuuuu”
The days and nights of longing, the hours of torture, the one single lie at Blossom Heart Valley had destroyed her heart and soul. She realised that she could no longer go and leave him anymore. She developed a feeling of entrusting herself wholeheartedly to him, which could not be removed, nor thrown away.
“Miss Ming’er, w-what’s going on?”
Lu Xi Shan who was at the side was bewildered, he watched everything in astonishment, his brain could not make sense of anything.
The light, graceful and gentle Su Ming’er, why was she like a young married woman crying painfully in another person’s embrace?
Seeing Su Ming’er’s red eyes, her loving and moving face, Lu Xi Shan felt the pain in his chest, the envy and fire erupting out, as though it wanted to burn his chest alive.
He had done so much, wasn’t everything for Su Ming’er? But how could he have expected that before he could even touch her small hands, she had already entered another person’s embrace, and seeing the way Su Ming’er was, it felt as though she had regretted parting ways with the man.
Wait a minute, regret parting.
Lu Xi Shan was startled as he looked at Su Ming’er. He saw that her eyes that was looking gently at Su Yun, was filled with emotions.
Could the two of them be related?
As though he had thought of something bad, his face turned pale white. When he looked at Su Yun, his eyes surfaced with inexhaustible hatred.
“Young Master, can I look at your face?” Su Qing’er gently held on Su Yun and asked.
The people from the Profound Sky Sect were already dead, and even if the remaining people recognized that he was Limitless, he was not afraid. Since the Qin Creek people were not planning on attacking him at that moment, he nodded and took down the mask.
Immediately, a white and skinny face appeared in Qing’er’s eyes.
Seeing that face, Qing’ers tears poured even more, the stream of tears dropping down her face.
“Young master, you must have suffered greatly this time. It was all Qing’ers fault, Qing’er is useless. At that time if Qing’er was strong enough. Young master need not do what he had done.”
She extended her trembling hand out to take out a suspended object from her chest, it was the exquisite heart jewel, and every time she looked at it, Qing’er would not be able to resist and cry.
“Silly girl! Am I not safe and sound here now?” Seeing that she only cared for him, Su Yun’s heart was fuzzy, feeling that everything he had done was worth it.
She is the only person in this world that I care about, other than her, what do I have?
Bai Feng Ye was seated beside Bai Yan Shan and was talking to her. But Bai Yan Shan would periodically look over at Wu Yun, and when he took down his mask, Bai Yan Shan’s eyes revealed a dazing look.
Bai Feng Ye was startled, looking at her focus, he thought for a moment, then revealed a smile: “Yan Shan, you like that Wu Yun?”
“How is that possible?” Bai Yan Shan shook her head gently.
Bai Feng Ye leaned in closer and asked softly: “He is Su Yun right?”
“I heard that you and him once had an arranged marriage?”
“Why did you break it?”
“Because he was weak at that time. I, Bai Yan Shan, when looking for a dual cultivation companion, will naturally find one that is strong and worthy.”
“He is weak?”
“Now he isn’t, but he was in the past.”
“Your eyes are too shallow.”
Bai Feng Ye shook his head and sighed.
Bao Yan Shan was silent for a moment, and then she also sighed: “You’re right, but, who could have thought, that the worthless and nameless trash would actually become so powerful. At that time at the Wu Shuang Jue Meet, I could not dare believe my eyes, that man who shook The Meeting of Heroes… Would actually be the trash that I broke the marriage arrangement with… Su Yun.”
“Hehe, who can? Yan Shan, that’s where your way of thinking is wrong.” Bai Feng Ye shook his head, with a sense of reprimand in his voice: “Although I have left the Bai Family since I was young and have not conversed with you for so long, I know that my experiences and my knowledge greatly surpasses yours. Yan Shan, to find a strong cultivator to be a dual cultivation companion is an insurance method for cultivators to use to increase their strength. I have heard about you, and can see you are wholehearted in your pursuit for the dao, you are strong in character, and never seeked anything other than improving your strength. That attitude is not bad, but it is also not the best. If you continue with this attitude, not only will it prevent you from being a true cultivator, it will also destroy you!”
“It will make you lose sight of yourself, cloud your judgement and make you unable to see! Su Yun who is in front of you is an example, at the start you simply saw that he was weak. However, you knew that his determination was relentless, then, why is he not the strong dual cultivation companion that you seek for?”
“Brother, what do you mean?” Bai Yan Shan’s face revealed a trace of worry, her tone became somewhat annoyed: “You think I should regret this?”
“Regret? It’s too late for that!” Bai Feng Ye laughed bitterly: “I’m saying all these is not to make you feel regret, but hope that you stop seeing someone based on his strength, like Su Yun! Yan Shan, you cannot be like this for your whole life. Otherwise, you will never be happy! Open your eyes! The world is so big, you will interact with a lot more people, and the truly strong cultivators, are never those who lay everything in strength!”
With that said, Bai Feng Ye sighed loudly once more, and then stopped talking.
Hearing that, Bai Yan Shan also went quiet, her heart and mind was in a mess. In the beginning, she felt anger, but after that, she felt as if her back had turned cold.
Su Yun was still embracing Qing’er, the two of them still talking. Su Yun told Qing’er of the reason why he had joined the Mountain River List ranking competition. Listening to him, she continued to tear.
But now that he had found Qing’er, he had already found that there was no meaning in continuing with the Mountain River List ranking competition, and wanted to bring Qing’er out of Qin Creek.
But just then, a figure suddenly jumped out.
“Cultivator Wu Yun, please wait!”
Hearing that, Su Yun turned to look.
He realised that the person who jumped out to speak was the proficient and outstanding Valkyrie Xiao Chuo.
“Does Valkyrie have anything she needs?” Su Yun cupped his fist and asked.
“Cultivator Wu Yun, are you leaving Mountain River List ranking competetion?” Xiao Chuo’s eyes were glistening, revealing the fire in her eyes.
“Yes.” Su Yun did not quibble anymore, and directly nodded his head: “I truly do not care about the prizes or ranking of Mountain River List, the reason for me being here is to find a person.”
“Is the person the one by your side, Miss Su Ming’er from Snow Jade Palace?”
“I see.” Valkyrie nodded her head: “But, why not you and I have a match before leaving, if not you will leave me unreconciled. Cultivator friend Wu Yun, since we did not have a victor in the forest that day. Now that we are here in the competition, why not we fight one round happily, what about it?”
“Another day!” Su Yun waved his hand as he rejected without any hesitation.
At the moment, he just wanted to find a place where no one would disturb, and to be with Qing’er alone. He did not want to care about any other matters.
He only had that desire, and did not seek for something grand or big.
He had directly and straightforwardly rejected her in front of everyone, which could be said that he was not giving her any face.
But Valkyrie was not angry at all.
She shook her head and spoke: “Cultivator friend Wu Yun, do not refuse me so quickly. In truth, let me tell you, during your battle with Li Mu Qing, many people were already suspecting that you are Limitless, but whether or not you are Limitless or Wu Yun, it isn’t important. The important thing is that once you leave the Sacred Palace, there will be endless of troubles for you. Inside here, many people know that you have the Monarch Occult Force and Heavenly Crystal, they are worth far more than the top prizes of the Mountain River List. If I am not wrong, many people already have sneakily sent out information, and many experts are already gathering outside, the moment you go out, you will definitely be ambushed!”
The moment she said that, the faces of many people all started to turn weird, some had lowered their heads, as though they did not dare to look at Valkyrie and Su Yun.
Hearing that, Su Yun frowned.
“Are there people who dares to make a ruckus in Qin Creek?”
Bai Feng Ye laughed languidly.
“They might not, in Qin Creek, but what about outside of Qin Creek?”
Xiao Chuo said.
“What are you thinking of then?” Su Yun stared at Xiao Chuo.
Xiao Chuo’s eyebrows relaxed, and she said gently: “Cultivator friend Wu Yun, if you are willing to fight with me with all your might, regardless of winning or losing, I am willing to promise your safety out of Qin Creek, and bring you to the place where you want to go! I can vouch for that with My Xiao Family’s name!”
In truth, Su Yun did not know much about Valkyrie. Even if it was in the past life, he did not care much about the talented youths of the generation, but he could still remember, that amongst cultivators that attacked the Demonic Continent, there truly was a famous female general that appeared. It was said that even her name could scare the little demons and spirit demons, but he did not know if she was related to Valkyrie.
To avoid being outnumbered like at Blossom Heart Valley again, Su Yun thought about it, and finally agreed.
“Young master, why don’t you let me fight?” Su Ming’er who was beside him immediately said.
“No, the one she wants to challenge is me!”
Su Yun laughed.
Qing’er gently bit her lips but did not say anymore. Her mind and heart was sharp, and could tell that Valkyrie did not harbor any evil intent, and purely wanted to exchange pointers, and thus relaxed.
“Alright! Wu Yun, we will finally be able to see who is better!”
A light aura lit up in Valkyrie’s eyes, she nodded her head and turned, taking out her gold order badge, she walked over to the four elders.
Standing there, Valkyrie Xiao Chuo bowed gracefully, her movements were flawless, with a composed bearing, she said with a dignified voice: “Four Senior’s, junior Xiao Chuo is bold enough to apply for the ‘Liberty Battle’, with our own strengths, we will compete for the first place!”
When she said those words, everyone in the Sacred Palace was shocked.
