The Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon
Ling Qing Yu was still in midair, looking at Su Yun with her blank look. Only after a while did she close her mouth, then said: “P-powerful, to actually be able to use the two different types of sword might of the Parts and Whole to form a collective movement… Su Yun, in the Eight Parts Eight Whole Formation, there never was such a move, but you who literally just learnt it actually improvised. I truly do not know if I should call you an idiot or a genius! Do you know what would have happened if you failed?”
“I have no other ways left.” Su Yun laughed bitterly: “To be forced into such a predicament, If I do not take the risk, how could I win against this sword?”
Ling Qing Yu opened her mouth, but did not know what to say.
The Desolator was still hovering in the air, but it did not move anymore, it did not become invisible either. Su Yun knew that it had been subdued by him.
He flew over, and with one hand, he grabbed onto the Desolator’s hilt. Practically at the same time, the 300 sub swords around flew over, and revolved above Su Yun.
Su Yun was moved, he scrutinized the sword carefully.
The Desolator’s blade was not considered long, it was shorter than average swords by an inch and the sword blade was a dim grey color. The sword hilt did not have any gems or decorative features, the entire sword did not have any luster, and looked to be extremely unremarkable, but this seemingly unremarkable sword was able to produce an invisible threat to others.
Su Yun activated his Profound Spirit Qi and imbued it to the sword body. The Desolator trembled slightly, and a grey halo rippled out in all directions. In that instant, including Immortal Mystical Scarlet Blood Sword and all of its sub swords, all of the swords disappeared! But, Su Yun could clearly feel their presence.
1300 plus swords were all completely invisible!!!
How terrifying is that?
“With the assistance of Desolator, even if I meet with a fourth stage Spirit Star Realm cultivator, I have the ability to put up a fight!” Su Yun was ecstatic.
“You better not look down on fourth stage Spirit Star Realm experts!” Ling Qing Yu said with a serious look: “These existences are not poor people, they naturally have many strong treasures on them and all of them have one or two trump cards, so you better not be too complacent! A Spirit Star Realm cultivator will have a lot of difficulty in cultivating, and every single one of them have experienced far more dangerous situations that you can ever imagine! You better remember that!”
Ling Qing Yu had interacted with all the powerful figures before, and her knowledge was much richer than Su Yun. Regarding this warning, Su Yun naturally nodded his head in acceptance.
After obtaining the Desolator, Su Yun did not put it on his back anymore. The Desolator was not as violent and did not have a temperament like the Immortal Mystical Scarlet Blood Sword or the Death Sword, and after being subdued, it was so terrifyingly quiet. Su Yun decided to keep it inside the Everlasting Sword Sheath, and left the sword world.
Ling Qing Yu remained inside the Everlasting Sword Sheath and found a place to cultivate by herself.
Back inside the house, Su Yun felt extremely good. He currently had two Primal Swords in his hands, with a total of over 1300 flying swords, his strength had increased substantially.
But compared to the Desolator, Su Yun was even more pleased towards the sword formation that Ling Qing Yu taught him.
Although it was a preliminary sword formation, he could feel the might behind it. Sword formations were much more effective than him relying on random control and slashes, he also remembered that the Sword Elder had also mentioned before that there were sword techniques for controlling swords, but sword techniques were too scattered, while a sword formation was one system. A stack of chopsticks were definitely harder than just one chopstick.
Su Yun composed himself and sat down cross legged, comprehending the Eight Parts Eight Whole Formation while tempering his Profound Spirit Qi.
After an unknown period of time.
“Is Master Sly in?”
Just then, a respectful voice came out from outside.
Su Yun opened his eyes, after thinking about it, he ignored it and continued to train, but just at this time, another voice came out again.
“Master Sly, We are the disciples of the Law Enforcement Unit. Please open the enchantment, we would like to ask you a few questions!”
Su Yun was startled. Suddenly, he thought about something, and tensed up: Could it be about Dong Feng?
~If I brush them off, I will definitely make them suspect me.~
He took a deep breath and walked out of the house.
Upon exiting, he saw four cultivators floating with matching green blades, they all dressed in the same attire: Black robes with yellow linings, and with some golden armor on places which were more prone to danger. They looked suave and powerful, with order badges hanging on their waists that were not ordinary disciple badges, with a golden print ‘Law’ written on it.
Seeing Sly walking over, the Law enforcement people cupped their fists, but their actions did not seem extremely respectful.
Seeing that, Su Yun thought in his mind: It seems like to the law enforcement people, the sect elites are not powerful people.
“Master Sly, I am Qin Song from the Law Enforcement Unit, and am responsible for investigating Sect Elite Ying Dong Feng’s disappearance. Can I ask if it is a convenient time for Master now? Qin Song wants to ask Master Sly some questions if it is possible?”
“What? Dong Feng is missing? But what does it have to do with me? Are you all thinking that I captured him?” Su Yun feigned an angry look and snorted at the four of them.
“Master, please do not be angry, that is not what I meant!” Qin Song immediately replied. Although the sect elites were not considered powerful to the Law Enforcement unit, the law enforcement unit’s position was still beneath the sect elites, so Qin Song’s proclamation of ‘Master’, showed that Su Yun was still able to feign a temper.
“Master, I only thought that Master Dong Feng and you have a good relation, and thus came to ask a few questions. We do not have any other intentions, I hope Master will not think wrongly!”
“Humph, I figured you guys dare not either!”
Su Yun chided, then waved his hand and removed the enchantment.
Qin Song and the other law enforcement members flew in.
“What happened to Dong Feng? Why is he missing?”
Su Yun sat cross legged on the ground, meditating and asked.
“With regards to Master Dong Feng, we do not have any idea either, but the disciples in the Location Hall caught sight of Master Dong Feng’s order badge information. We tried to establish communication with Master Dong Feng but to no avail, and we do not know about his location either. The guardian disciples guarding the entrance also said that Master Dong Feng did not leave the Profound Sky Sect, so the clan elder ordered us to investigate!”
“So it was like that” Su Yun calmly muttered, but his heart tensed up: ~Never thought that the Profound Sky Sect’s order badge will have some sort of seal, where upon being destroyed, the Profound Sky Sect’s people will find out. I should had taken his order badge before taking care of him at that time!
“Everyone in the Profound Sky Sect knows that Master Dong Feng and Master Sly have a good relationship, so we specially came to ask. Master, when was the last time Master Sly met Master Dong Feng?” Qin Song laughed.
But after saying that, Su Yun’s face immediately became ugly. Dong Feng and Sly have a good relationship? I think they should be investigating Sly because of their grievances right? Moreover, Su Yun did not know if others knew about Dong Feng coming to visit him… If there were people who knew, and if he said that he had not met him, wouldn’t it lead to suspicions?”
After thinking for a bit, Su Yun replied: “After coming back from the mission, Master Dong Feng came and visited me once! Because my injuries were serious, he gave me a ‘Clear Immortal Tri-scent Pill’ to aid in my recovery. After consuming it, I stayed here to recover. Master Dong Feng then left, but as for where he went, I do not know.”
Hearing that, the law enforcement unit secretly looked at each other, Qin Song’s eyes revealed a trace of being at a loss, he finally sighed and cupped his fists: “Since it was so, then we have disturbed Master, we still have other places to investigate and will not stay here any further, we will take our leave first!”
“I have not fully recovered yet, and need to rest, I won’t send you all off!”
“No worries, Master!”
Qin Song and the rest replied respectfully, then turned and left the jade platform.
When they left, Su Yun’s tensed mind finally relaxed.
~From the looks revealed in Qing Song’s eyes, he should not be suspicious of me anymore. After all, ‘Sly’ had just returned from a mission and was heavily injured, so how can he have time to act against Dong Feng? If he wanted to, even the injured Sly cannot do anything to him.~
~However, if someone sees through my identity, I will truly be dead~ Su Yun definitely could not escape from the hundreds of enchantments sealing the mountain range, not only would he be unable to escape, he would most probably be destroyed by Profound Sky Sect experts.
Su Yun’s eyes twitched, he activated the Shadow Locket and established a communication with Great Obscure.
“Master!” Great Obscure’s voice came out.
“What happened to Dong Feng?” Su Yun asked.
“Dong Feng? Master, how do you know about Dong Feng?” Great Obscure’s shock voice came out. The matter had not been publicly announced, but Su Yun knew about it, as though he was in the Profound Sky Sect.
“Don’t ask so much, tell me what is happening to Dong Feng and what’s happening in the Profound Sky Sect now!”
Great Obscure became focused and said: “According to Second Shadow and Third Obscure, the disciples in the Location Hall had confirmed that Master Dong Feng is already dead. Now the Law Enforcement unit is investigating his death. Because the guardian disciples had not activated the enchantment, Master Dong Feng could not have left Profound Sky Sect. Heh, the Law Enforcement Unit reckons it was someone on the inside that harmed Master Dong Feng!”
“Oh? Seems like it is a very serious matter?”
“Sigh, it is not really that serious, but it is also not light. The Profound Sky Sect is a place where the strong feasts on the weak. In truth, there will be people dying in here everyday. Because of seizing resources or the different small group conflicts, there are friction between disciples here, the higher ups of Profound Sky Sect seldom care about all these, so the death of disciples are a common thing here, but this time, a sect elite had died. The Law Enforcement Unit who have always been slacking had no choice but to personally step up and investigate, but from the looks of it, It seems that the law enforcement unit is only doing it for a show, maybe after a period of time, everything will cool down.”
Hearing that, Su Yun frowned: “From the way you said it, the Profound Sky Sect is very messy right? But why is it so strong today?”
“Master, could it be that you don’t understand this logic?”
“The more people there are, the more chaotic it is! Why is Profound Sky Sect so chaotic? That’s because the sect’s scale is larger than you can imagine, made up of many smaller sects, the lack of management creates chaos and mess, but today, no matter how chaotic the Profound Sky Sect is, other sects cannot fight against them!”
Great Obscure said seriously.
Su Yun kept quiet.
“Oh yes, Master, Fifth Obscure found a secret, and was about to report to you. It is a secret regarding a treasure of the highest quality, this subordinate thinks it is obtainable. Master’s cultivation is in the third stage of the Spirit Star Realm, with this treasure, you’ll be like a tiger with wings!”
“What treasure is it?” Su Yun asked.
“The Great Negative Yang Immortal Cannon!”
